31 "What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
I am Christian musician/artist and am interested in evangelism. I believe this is my calling. I am not and do not feel called to be a pastor of a church, so I am not starting one with this website. I believe that JESUS is GOD the Son and the only One who can save us. I believe that the Bible is the truth and perfectly inspired by GOD's Holy SPIRIT. If anyone is looking at my website who doesn't go to church, my suggestion to you is to find a good church in your local area that makes you feel connected to GOD through a relationship with JESUS Christ. Also work on your own personal relationship with JESUS Christ through prayer, Christian music and television, Bible reading, and other devotions of time to GOD Almighty who is love.
I am currently working by teaching music and art classes part-time at Massanutten Resort. I am also trying to recruit students for private music lessons. I plan to charge $15 for 30-minute lessons. Pick your instrument, I work on learning several instruments. (GOD has blessed me more than I dreamed of.) Contact me above if interested.
F.Y.I. - The person in a wheelchair you see in some of my pictures is my friend Daniel. Daniel is a cool guy who believes in JESUS Christ, graduate of Eastern Mennonite University, and he is a poet and talented writer.
I perform music when I can. I consider Christian missions in all the arts as my calling in life. Some of my artwork is on this website also. I hope and pray to GOD to spend my life making Christian art and preforming the arts in thankfulness to GOD for what He has done in my life and for His glory. JESUS is worthy! I believe that JESUS is the Savior of the world, and my life has changed so much for the better because of Him!
I write music and I have original songs on this website. All of that is still a work in progress. This is a fulfilment of a dream in my life. Again, I know that it was only possible because of GOD! I am starting to try and write Christian fiction novels also. The first one is still going to take further in the future to be completed.
I am interested in playing music in a band if there are other Christians who want to try that together. I would want to play Christian music too, because that is who I am. I am interested in opportunities to lead worship music in church(s). I am also interested in helping Christian non-profit ministries organize fundraiser music events.
I am originally from Culpeper, VA. I went to JMU after high school, but was not responsible or a disciplined student so I did not do well academically. My third year at JMU I got involved in various campus clubs and the Methodist campus ministry group. Still not a good student but improving my social behaviors. At an alternative spring break trip with the Methodist JMU campus group I learned about AmeriCorps. I dropped out of JMU and worked for Habitat for Humanity in Dallas, TX then City Year in San Jose, CA. In Dallas, TX I got a tattoo of a JESUS fish on my ankle as a symbol of my life decision as an adult to believe in JESUS and live my life as a Christian. I still had not developed a serious relationship with JESUS yet. After a year of service at both cities, I moved to southwest Virginia with a friend who was finishing college at Radford University. Here is where I decided to pursue music and the arts seriously for the rest of my life, and when I first started to write songs. I would also go through my mental struggles after moving to Montgomery County, VA that broke me of my own will and helped me realize my need for GOD. After a few years I moved back to Culpeper, VA with my parents. I had already started reading the Bible not long before this point, but it was then that I finally started attending church again. My first day back in church was February 18, 2007. It was and is reading the Bible that inspires my love and discipline for reading. At this point I started getting a serious introduction to contemporary Christian music. I was back in Culpeper, VA for roughly a decade and now live in Harrisonburg, VA again with my mother. We moved here in 2018. This is where my parents and all my aunts and uncles grew up. I have been celibate for over 20 years now. GOD has used celibacy as a blessing in my life. As far as the future and being married or staying single, I just pray to do GOD's will. I am 43 years old now and want to keep my faith in JESUS first. Two jobs that I have learned the most from is working with children/youth and cooking. Both were important work experiences for me, with both good moments and bad, and I use the lessons I've learned there on a daily basis. Now I plan to keep pursuing the arts to the best of my ability for the rest of my life and keep it focused on JESUS. I still enjoy teaching children music and arts a lot. They are gifts from GOD! I know what the bottom feels like in life because I have been there when I tried to live my life my own way without taking the time to really pay much attention to GOD. Now that I know who JESUS is and what He has done for me, I pray that I trust Him more every day to keep saving me in this life and the next. I am weak, but He is strong! (John 3:16)
