New Updates Coming Soon!
I've been dedicating most of my time to life coaching and writing my book over the past year or so, but in 2015 will be giving much more attention to the music portion of my ministry. New updates are right around the corner with exciting news about our new download store and much more!
Retiring From Touring After 15 Years
January 1, 2013
Yes, it's true! The time has come for me to retire from touring. 15 years of traveling ministry across the US and abroad has been GOLDEN! My last concert was November 16th, 2012. That marked the 5th anniversary of my near fatal accident I had while in route to that very concert in 2007. What a way to go out, celebrating God's miraculous power to the very people I was supposed to perform for 5 years ago!
It has been an incredible 15 year run where God used my gifts and talents to bless, encourage, inspire and challange thousands upon thousands of people! Now it's time to move on and see where God leads me next. Maybe some writing? Maybe other ways to influence others with my music or gift of encouragement? Maybe something entirely different and unique - Who knows! I know whatever it is, it will be an exciting adventure. It always is with God! Stay tuned and I'll keep you posted as God opens new doors of opportunity for me. No matter what platform it is, I will use that platform to glorify the One I live for! More soon! Shine On, friends!
Hottest Song of 2012!
October 2, 2012
This Little Light, with UC and Brandon Rushin has been the hottest song of the year! We get more requests for this song than any other and when we poll the kids about what their favorite song in a concert or camp was, it's by far "This Little Light"! This Hip Hop style song has a catchy chorus that just won't get out of your head! You can find it on iTunes, or better yet, buy the whole CD "Shine On" in our web store!

A BIG thank you to all of you who took advantage of our Only 144 Sale last month! It was a MEGA SUCCESS! The reason I am so pumped about it is because the proceeds from that sale have enabled me to do 5 mission camps this year that can't pay me! My heart is for overlooked kids, and now I get to do 2 inner city camps in PA, 1 Salvation Army camp in MI, 1 Refugee camp in TX and 1 Special Needs camp in FL! These types of camps minister to the underdog kids and I want to use my gifts and talents to encourage and inspire these who are often overlooked. The trick is to be able to do that and still make a living, because these camps can't afford to bring people like me in. But you made it possible by participating in the Only 144 sale. Thank you for helping me reach the overlooked! God provides when we trust him! He makes a way in the desert! Amen? Uh-Huh? O Ya!
A new CD is in the worlks and out goal is to have it out before June! It will probably be called "Children of God".....go figure! haha! I'll keep you posted.
You can find our individual Mp3 downloads on I Tunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and spotify! go for it!
Performance Trax version to all of our songs are available by emailing me at email@example.com. We don;t have room in our store yet to post them, but they are available. So if you need performance trax (everything but the lead vocal) in Mpeg lyrics or in audio only Mp3's, contact me! sorry, we don;t do spliut trax. We only use stereo versions for maximum quality.

"Get Your Kids Excited About Worship!" Workshops
in Spring, Fall and Winter I am offering to come to your church for a weekend to pour into your adult and teen volunteers or your kids praise team! Maybe your kids worship needs a jump start for 2012. Maybe your volunteers can use some training and encouragement. I would love to bring my 15 plus years of experience on the road ministering to thousands of children to your volunteers and help them get your kids excited about worship!
It's simple: You bring in me and one of my praise team members to do a "how to" workshop for your adult or teen volunteers, or your kids praise team. We'll teach them how to lead a variety of fun action songs, high energy worship, and meaningful worship and praise.
Then we stay over and actually lead a children's worship hour during your children's group hour, using your volunteers or kids praise team on stage! It's like "on the job training"!
Find out more about this wonderful opportunity in the "Travel Ministry" page. Email me if you are interested! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can the “X” in "Merry "Xmas" Be Something Good?
December 8, 2011
You know, everywhere we turn we see the term “Merry X-mas”. It’s more and more prevalent as each year passes. I’m sure it bothers most Christians like it does me. You see, we look at the English letter X and how it replaces the word “Christ” and are repulsed because it seems the secular society we live in attempts to always try to find ways to take Christ out of everything. But I learned something really neat a few weeks ago that allows me to see the “X” factor with a new perspective.
I don’t know if the average person knows this or not, but “X” is actually the first letter of the Greek New Testament name for Christ. (Christos). That “X” has come through church history to actually be the short hand symbol for the name of Christ! Much like the (ichthus) fish symbol we often see - the ichthus was actually a universal symbol for early Christians. It means “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior”. The early church would take the first letters for that Greek phrase and put those letters together to spell the Greek word for fish. That’s how the symbol came to being.
So no matter what the intent of “Taking Christ out of Christmas” was, Christ (“X”) has remained in the word “Christmas” after all! You just can’t outsmart God! He always gets the last laugh! You can share that and give the glory back to God where it belongs. But the most important thing is that we keep Christ in Christmas by how we choose to live our lives this Christmas season and every day after! Merry Christ”X”mas!
Cya here, there, or in the air!
We're Upward Bound!

Welcome to my new web site!
Hope you like the new look! You find our new site and on-line store to be much more user-friendly! Feel free to browse around - Check out our bios, read my testimony of my miraculous accident recovery, sample and purchase great music for your kids ministries, and much more!
After taking a year off from traveling to lead kids worship in a great church south of Tampa, I am now in a new season of touring again. My team and I will be doing limited concerts and for kids and families, and we will be giving more of our time and energy towards leading events and camps for overlooked children. (See our missions page - Ministry to the Overlooked). It's great to be back on the road and doing what I was created to do!
Be Encouraged Today:
I leave you with this encouraging verse that assures us that God sees all those little things we do in ministry - all the extra hours and effort we put in - all the things done behind the scenes - all the times we go out of our way to show we care for others - all the sacrifices we make that no one else even knows about - He sees it all and He doesn't forget!
Take a look at Hebrews 6:10 - "For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do." Be encouraged today!
