My favorite word: Majestic

In my spare time I like: play with my son, build model railroads, write music, play with lighting

Another profession I’d like to try: Airline Pilot

A profession I never want to try: Accountant

I’m passionate about: Exciting corporate worship and seeing people grow in their sensitivity toward the lost and the hurting. 

I get frustrated when: It appears like evil is winning. I need to remember that it is the Lord’s battle and it is not mine to fight. 

When I get to Heaven, I’d like to hear God say: “Come see your dad!”
