BACKGROUND

I have spent much of my public ministry helping catalyze worship and prayer in Christian-minority contexts. As a worship leader, I have served in a number of multicultural, local churches across many streams and denominations. Though I have ministered with leading worship artists, I am also honored to be able to worship with and train leaders in Kurdish house churches in Northern Iraq and new church plants in Turkey.

At Dordt, I come alive facilitating dynamic learning environments tailored to meet students’ unique learning styles and backgrounds. I love serving in Campus Ministries where we support student growth and provide opportunities to encounter God together.

I am a visiting lecturer at London School of Theology where I served as head of theology, music and worship programs for six years. I also teach pastors and ministry leaders at Regent University and Northern Seminary. I minister internationally as a worship leader, preacher and theological educator. My most recent saxophone project, London Christmas Session, features jazz arrangements of carols recorded in London.
