The Stand – Bad Capo

Okay here’s what happens when your worship pastor screws up and accidentally capos one fret off.  No joke.  I slammed that capo on the guitar so fast I was 1/2 step off from the rest of the band.  This might be one of the funniest things I have ever done in a live setting.  Listen as everybody in the band tries to find what key we are in.  The semi-tone dissonance borders on making you nauseas.  I want to formally apologize to the team for embarassing them in front of a full house.  This thing actually gets more hilarious the more you listen to it.  Click to listen:  The Stand – bad capo


Bad Day At The Office

I couldn’t help myself and just had to post this (needed a little levity I guess).  Enjoy.


Goodbye MSC

To say the events of the last few weeks in my life have been tumultuous would be an understatement.  As many of you already are aware, my time as Worship Pastor at Mountain Springs Church came to a close last Thursday.  We did not have the opportunity to say goodbye which breaks my heart.  So I would like to say the following to all of you we have served with for so long:

It has been one of the great joys of my life to serve on staff at Mountain Springs and under the leadership of Steve Holt.  I have cherished every opportunity to serve you all and beside you all and honestly wish either there was no departure at all, or at the very least, my departure was under different circumstances.  In my heart, I do not want to leave my post, the pastoral team and their families, our friends at MSC, and my wonderful staff and interns.  I gave the Lord everything I had at MSC; heart, soul, mind and strength.  Moving from 3 to 4 to 5 weekend services, 2 building projects, Concerts of Prayer, Praise, and Worship, Easter & Christmas productions, workshops, teaching, preaching, mentoring, and discipleship, songwriting, releasing 3 live worship CD’s, Prayer Ministry, Communications Ministry; through it all it has been a wonderful journey.  Dina and I came to the church with Julian and Jasmine when we were a fellowship of 600 believers and through many valleys and mountaintops we all have seen God grow MSC to over 3,000 people.  It has been an honor to serve the Lord through this season.  Although we have been rocked by the events of the past 2 weeks Dina and I believe God is sovereign and this hope will carry us through to the next season of our lives.

My heart and mind are just not big enough to hold all the wonderful experiences and memories of MSC.  We will miss you all deeply.

In closing, I am deeply concerned about untruths that we have heard over the past few days that are being said about me and my wonderful family.  If you have heard something you question, I ask you to take it directly to the Lord in prayer.  Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal truth to you so we can stop any gossip and rumor and get about the business of our true purpose here on earth – to glorify God in all we do.
