Worship Factory update...

Check out the Worship Factory website at The website is a place for artists to find out about other artists. There are interviews with some pretty interesting people in the biz from our radio days so check out the guest list.  


Seems like I've always been playing music but it started when I was a young boy growing up in Oregon. There was always a guitar or piano around so I started piano at 7 and guitar around 11. I grew up in church where Mom played piano and we sang hymns but I didn't get a passion for music until around 1970 when I was touched by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. That got me hooked on worship and I started learning and growing as a musician and worshipper. In 1976, I married my beautiful wife, Ann, and we began our journey in Christ together. We were blessed with 2 wonderful children and now we have two grandchildren.

The journey has taken Ann and I through several churches in Oregon and California where I served in various roles from musician to worship leader and even pastoring. This journey in worship and ministry has given me some wonderful moments and some huge challenges. I am thankful for everything God has brought us through and looking forward to all that He has for us going forward. 

At present, we are involved at Higher Vision Church in Santa Clarita, CA ( It is a privilege to be a part of what God is doing in worship ministry these days. My role has changed from being the front person to more of background role in support of those that are developing their gifts and ministry skills but I enjoy beig able to encourage and support the talents and gifts of the next generation.

I have my own business providing construction management and consulting services ( I am blessed to be able service the construction related needs of several churches in the Southern California area as well as other clients. God has blessed the business tremendously for which I am thankful.

Additional notes from me about the songs:

As I Praise Your Name - the song is about what goes on inside when we give praise to the Lord. It's about focus and being real and at the same time letting go and being free to express yourself.

My Soul Longs - this song comes out of deep longing to offer God something in worship even though the greatest offering we can make doesn't begin to compare with what He has done. In the end, all we can do is worship Him.

Forever You Are Lord - This worship song is about an awesome God and no matter what people want to believe or what they say He will be Lord forever. He will always be bigger and stronger than anything else in this world.
