I am a recovering worship leader.
Hanging on my wall is a church music degree. Along the way I picked up a religion minor. I have spent years singing in church choirs, on praise teams, and as a worship leader. I devoted three years to the African Children’s Choir as their music supervisor and had the chance to work with Christian musicians like the Gaithers, Jars of Clay, and Steven Curtis Chapman. There was a time in my life when all I listened to was contemporary Christian music. I could identify any song on K-Love within hearing the first ten measures. I was obsessed with Christianity and it’s music following. I loved to worship Jesus through song.
Now there is a dull void. There is no excitement or energy. Somewhere along the way a disconnect happened. I don’t know exactly how or why or when it happened, but that is why I write. I write to share the pain, the struggle, the humility and sometimes the joy of my worship journey. Hopefully along the way I’ll discover the source of the disconnect and maybe some healing as well.
Thanks for joining me on my journey.
