Singer/song writer of country style Gospel music, and member of ISSA (International Singer/Songwriter's Association). Have pastored several churches throughout the years. My wife, Lynne, and I worked together to raise up a church from the ground up. We are now members of Calvary Chapel church in Monett. Mo, under Pastors Dennis and Patty Burge. We are largely involved in the music program there, as well as doing Volunteer programs for local senior citizens homes. We both love gospel music, and sharing the love of God where ever we get the opportunity. Our album, Crucified, is actually our first. We both have been in music of some form for many years. I write music the same way I preached.., as the Holy Spirit leads. Our songs can be found on YouTube, Google play, itunes/ apple music. Spotify. Always available for bookings. Our mission is to share God’s love, to His Glory and Honor.
