MUSICAL WORSHIP PORTFOLIO
This is a sample of my leading at my current local church. These are songs written in the 2010s (such as Lion and the Lamb) and the 1200s (such as All Creatures of Our God & King). I love leading modern music, and traditional melodies with modern music beds. Our music reflects the culture of the Pacific Northwest and the Portland metro area.

I wrote, recorded, edited, produced, and promoted this nine-episode season of a podcast. This is a great overview of my theology of worship, and this first episode tells a bit of my story.

This is a song I wrote for baptisms at my local church. It’s based on the explanation of baptism as found in Romans 6. In this video, I am also the vocalist and acoustic guitar player.
This is a live recording of Come Thou Fount at my local church.
This is a song I wrote with a few of our interns in preparation for a youth summer camp with the theme of Christians needing each other in community.

This was my main musical outlet before beginning working on music in the church, and I’ve continued working on it while working in the church.
In my current role, I oversee the Creative Team that is responsible for naming, branding, and executing each of our sermon series. Essentially, our lead pastor provides us with his text for the series, and any major themes he is noticing from his study, and we come up with the branding.
In early 2018, I oversaw the renaming and rebranding of my current local church. This included working with staff and volunteers (artists, designers, web designers, and videographers) to complete this project. You can click the image to the right to see NGC’s branding.
