STATEMENT OF FAITH



I came to know the Lord as Savior at the age of fourteen at a youth camp in Honolulu, Hawaii. I was baptized and joined the Hawaii Kai Baptist Church where my father served as Pastor. The Lord called me to serve in full-time ministry at the age of eighteen while attending Oklahoma Baptist University. Since then I have sought the Lord's will for life in all I do. My desire in ministry is to serve the Lord in the local church. I desire to use my gifts and talents to further the gospel of Christ, to help churches become quality places where the arts are seen as awesome venues of ministry, and to serve along side men of God who are servants of grace for the Lord. I hope to continue to serve as a teacher of worship and music to those in my church and community.
