Calvary Monterey


I've served full time on staff at my local Church for the past ten years, first at Coastline Calvary Chapel in Gulf Breeze Florida and now as the Worship Pastor and Creative Director at Calvary Monterey, a Calvary Chapel Church in Monterey California.  Leading worship, training teams, writing and recording songs and overseeing graphic and video production are a few of fun things I get to do.

I began leading worship as many of us have, as an awkward twelve-year-old seventh grader.  Knowing only a few guitar chords and barely singing on key.  I had some patient mentors help train me along the way, one of the reasons I’m so passionate about doing the same for others. Over the years the Lord has given me the opportunity to lead worship for Churches, conferences and events all over the country and world but my heart is very much for the local Church and its leaders.

My wife Danya and I have been married since 2009.  She is a Worship Leader and songwriter herself.  We often get to lead worship together which is such a privilege.
