I am happily married to my wonderful wife, Sandy, and together we have two beautiful grown children and one grand baby. I was in the music industry for many years, and when I came to know the Lord my focus changed from performance to ministry. I have been serving the Lord for 35+ years. As a Contemporary Christian musician I have traveled and ministered. I am a Psalmist, Worship Leader, Songwriter & Sound Engineer, and I enjoy using these creative & intuitive talents to promote & encourage musicians & artists. In addition I am Microsoft certified, and I have an audio company, “Apostles of Sound”, where I consult, teach and train.
I believe that the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the ‘alphabet’, or the first essential element of living and being in Gods family! I thank God that He made the way for us, by sacrificing his life on this earth, so that we can come boldly and unashamedly into the Fathers presence!
I am so thankful that my Mom took me and my 4 siblings regularly to church where I learned to sing so many classic hymns and harmonies! I continued in Music, receiving my Bachelor of Music, and my Masters in Teaching and I have taught Vocal Music for many years in Public schools in the suburban Detroit area. My husband Gary and I love to move in the Psalmist gift and the flow of Worship! I have been serving God for 43 years and am so thankful for every day that I have been able to grow in the unending knowledge and grace of God!
I began leading in worship when I was 16 in a youth group and continued until I was in my early 20s. Then I spent 3 1/2 years in a ministry band, going to churches and youth homes across Michigan. I set my music down for about 10 years, while I studied and became a pastor. I found myself very unhappy, realizing being a pastor was not my calling. After several years of seeking God and putting my life back together I am walking closer with Him and serving Him again in music ministry, where I believe I was meant to be all along. Married for over 30 years, a father of 4 and grandfather of 4, I testify of God’s love and grace and encourage others to find His approval over man’s and to seek His will for their lives.
Just on a personal note, I am leaving Saturation Band as of Oct 1, 2022. I feel God has something new for me.
It has been an absolute blessing to have been a part of Saturation Band and all of the different members who have been a part of this Ministry/Band.
Leaving is such a mixed blessing as I am moving on I’m going to miss all of these wonderful people whom I have come to both know and love!
I have made myself available to fill in until a suitable replacement is firmly in place and will cherish all of the sweet memories of my years with Saturation Band.
I am the percussionist/drummer for Saturation Band. I grew up in a strong Christian home, and I’ve been playing drums since I was 5. Seeking God’s truth in doctrine led me to recognize my gifts from God, not only in drumming, but also in teaching. I love to pray for others, listening to what they have to say and I do seek for teaching moments. I enjoy being a spiritual father to others. Participating on the drums in various different Christian gigs whenever I get the opportunity is cool.
In addition to this, I’m a software engineer, doing software development and testing work for a suite of support software products for TACOM. I thank God for the gifts He has given to me, and I’m excited for what the future holds! God is good – all the time!
I began my journey as a sound technician in the 70’s. I joined the band “Teen Angels” as their soundman and toured with them for many years. Unfortunately, a bad car accident hindered me from continuing with the band. I then found the Lord and felt His call on my life to run sound for His glory. Since then, I have run sound for churches, bands, special events, theatre performances. I am married with a daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter, and I am grateful to them for their love and support. God is good!
I enjoy playing bass with Saturation Band. My passion is worship. In my view, there is nothing like worshipping in the Holy Spirit, this side of heaven! We are truly blessed. Following the Lord for over 35 years, my beautiful wife Christine and I have four children, and 3 grandchildren.
We have been involved in just about every kind of ministry in the church. Youth, Singles, Young Adults, Married couples, Parenting, Sound Support, and Worship ministry. I currently serve as a Deacon in my fellowship. Serving our Lord has been an incredible journey! We have seen and have experienced many opportunities to minister God’s love and mercy to others.
