Personal Statement:

Jesus Christ became my Lord and Savior at the age of 8. I was reared in a home where God was the center of our lives. In my youth, it was evident that God has blessed me with the gift of music. After developing this gift through the years, God placed in my heart the desire to serve Him full-time. i surrendered to God's call in 1988. God has given me a desire in my heart to lead in worship and help build and grow a song in the heart of God's people.
