I am currently the Director of Worship at Grace Fellowship Church in Duarte, CA. I am blessed and honored to serve, leading people to the throne of God as we worship Him through music every Sunday and set him on the throne of our lives daily.
I was born April 13, 1986. In 2009 I married my High School Sweetheart, Vanessa and we have three awesome children. 4 1/2 Year Old RJ, 2 1/2 Year Old Jude & 8 Month Old Charlie. I grew up in Sunny Southern California where I developed a deep love for music and worship. I started leading worship at my local church when I was just 12 years old. After high school I moved to Kansas City to study as an intern at the International House of Prayer.
After my internship I returned to Southern California and continued to lead worship at local churches as well as other conferences and events. In 2011 God called Vanessa and I to move our Graphic Design, Print and Marketing business to Kansas City. While there I continued to play and lead worship at a local church.
In February of 2013 I sold my business and God called my family and I to Fort Collins, CO to take a job as Director of Sales & Marketing for a company that was previously a customer of mine. While in CO for only a few months God began to work on my heart and sow seeds that would eventually help me to realize that God was calling me into full-time ministry. God used my time in CO to set my focus back on Him and draw me out of the marketplace.
So, in September of 2013 my family and I moved "home" to Los Angeles, CA and waited on God's direction. That direction came in November of 2013 when I was hired as the Director of Worship at Grace Fellowship church in Duarte, CA. After 2 Years as Worship Director, I was brought on Full-Time as the Associate Pastor while maintaining my role as Worship Director.
I am so blessed to do what I love for a living. I have spent years praying and studying and seeking God’s heart in Worship. I have attended trainings led by Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Eddie Espinosa and many more.
My desire as a pastor and worship leader is to place Christ on the throne of my life each and every day, allowing Him to work through me and I minister to others and help them connect with God. My heart is to passionately and humbly lead people into the throne room of God while rejoicing in who He is and what He has done. My hope is that a sincere desire would flow out of our times of worship; a desire to fall more deeply in love with Jesus. As we fall more in love with Him that it would drive our pursuit to study more about who this man Jesus really is and we would live a lifestyle of prayer and worship as we run the race that he has set before us.
