I lived on both coasts as an infant before my family settled in the Midwest. I attended grade school in Benton , Wi. where I also attended a Primitive Methodist Church. I have fond memories of the music and Vacation Bible School. We moved to Savanna , Il. where I graduated high school with honors. I then attended Knox College in Galesburg ,Il. for one year. I stopped going to school with the hopes of developing a music career. As a self-taught musician, I played in various bands and as a solo performer in clubs and restaurants around the Midwest. I moved to Davenport, Ia. in the late 70’s.


In 1983, while watching the 700 Club, I ACCEPTED JESUS AS MY SAVIOR. He completely changed my life. I started attending Community Christian Fellowship in Moline. Il. After a while I reluctantly joined the music team there. Eventually I was asked to lead worship and coordinate the team.


I began attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1985 and graduated with honors in 1988. I practiced for 1 year in Tomah, Wi and another in Clinton Ia. I moved back to Davenport in1991 and have practiced here in the Quad Cities ever since. I have participated in many Christian gatherings as a guitarist/vocalist as well as serving in churches as the Lord has led. I was called to First Baptist Church in September of 2014 and offered the position of Worship Director.  In December of 2017 I married my wonderful wife, Kathy.  We actually met in high school, but married years later.


My philosophy of church and worship is that Sundays have 2 purposes. 1) the Worship of God and 2) the edification of the Saints. I try to work closely with Pastor Cory and John to achieve those goals. We try to glorify God by using the best God centered music in blended services.  That includes the best of contemporary music as well as the best traditional music. Our actual worship leader is the Holy Spirit. We are His servants. It is a joy to serve God and His church. He has blessed FBC with an abundance of gifted musicians and singers and I am humbled to serve with them.
