SPECIAL TOPICS

MY PASSION IS WORSHIP IN SMALL SETTINGS.

For the past fifteen years, I’ve created original worship resources for small congregations. It started with the congregations that I was appointed to serve, then expanded to those of colleagues and various ministries wanting creative worship experiences. It grew from there, and I left local ministry on a quest to figure out how to better resource small setting worship.

Along the way, I spent seven years teaching Worship & Sacrament for the Course of Study at Saint Paul School of Theology, developed worship practicums for student pastors, and curated worship for the seminary at Saint Paul School of Theology. I shamelessly learned from and continued experimenting with the student pastors. Their feedback over time has been powerful in confirming what might seem to be an obvious truth: small is different from big.
