Updating with the Team

2020, what a year crazy year. Life has been totally turned upside down. I can only hope that at some point church life will return to normal with people meeting together, singing and worshipping as we have for 2000 years. ...Read More

Be Your Unique Self

Embrace Imperfect. Laughter. Laughter is one of the most healing things. It doesn’t happen so often anymore, but with two children in my house while I livestream every Sunday morning, there has been a few funny moments where...Read More

Why There’s No Such Thing As A ‘Worship Gig’

I’ve done a good bunch of worship drumming videos and tutorials on my YouTube channel and I’d often get guys asking about ‘church gigs’ how they can get into doing them. My reactions to those types...Read More

Get Ready for Overflow

Overflow, what does that mean? The Greek translation for the word overflow is “huperekchunnó”, which means “running over”. The worshipping experience is one that leaves you “running over” —or in better terms, consumed by ... Read More

This statement is usually followed by, “I don’t know what the rest of this does” in reference to the rest of the soundboard.
