In regards to the music of the church, he says, “My ministry objective is to glorify God by equipping the saints, edifying the church, and testifying to the gospel by utilizing gifts God has graciously fostered in the local church. I have a strong heart for Word-driven multi-generational worship, and I try to employ excellent music from many appropriate styles. As I strive to promote excellence in our church music, I find great joy in seeing believers align their lives and Jesus’ church with the standards of Scripture.”
