Life verse: Philippians 2:3-5, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves; each of you should look not only to your own interests but to the interests of others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus."

Responding in song to the Gospel of God’s Love for the world through his beloved son Jesus has been with me as long as I can remember. Whether directing the choir, or writing, or singing the hymns, leading people to make music to our Lord and even to just experience it, is my labor of love here at CPCLM. 

I’m grateful to be able to put to use the abilities I’ve been given in these ways. Thank you, CPCLM, and “...sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things.” Psalm 98.

I serve as the youth pastor of CPCLM. Here at our church I have the joy of building God centered relationships with our students and to shepherd and share with them the Word of God. God by His grace alone called me to serve faithfully for Him to the younger generation of students here at CPCLM. 

It has been put on my heart to lead, shepherd, and equip these students that they may love Jesus and live their lives faithfully following Him.

I play piano for the weekly church services and choir rehearsals. I provide support for the music ministry and create an atmosphere of worship for our congregants.

It has been my calling in life to do music, and it's a pleasure to have my hands be in service to God and how He works in peoples lives.

I ensure that every inquiring phone call, visitor, church and staff member feels warmly greeted, welcomed and properly directed to the person or information they are looking for. Through organization of the office space, assisting in preparation, and keeping accessible church information updated, I strive to make it easy for people to get plugged in.

Here at CPCLM, I believe I am able to use the gifts God has given me to really welcome and embrace the people that come in through listening to their stories and being able to pray over them.
