Early on, it was clear –
Music was the most direct and passionate expression of my heart towards God.
Over eight years, through several group incarnations, Fireworks maintained its core emphasis on transparent ministry, meaningful songs and great vocals. We recorded five albums and traveled the country, ministering and performing in churches and Christian music festivals as part of a second wave of the “Jesus Music” movement which had swept America and Europe.

and worship, the style is not the thing.
What matters is
the intention of the heart towards God,
the submission of the voice and
the collaboration with the Holy Spirit.
Our ministry became a training ground for me and a sign of things to come as I soon accepted a position as worship leader and creative arts pastor at McLean Bible Church, a thriving Washington, DC area mega church. I’d led worship many times during my career as a Christian performer, but the job of being a worship leader as a member of a church staff was new to me and I had a lot to learn.
