"I wish to express my deep gratitude that the congregation at Providence Baptist Church asked me to be their Music Director. I see and feel the Spirit in the love and outreach of each of the congregants, and I look forward to serving their spiritual needs. My goal is to continue the high quality of music that each are accustomed to, working collaboratively with all to celebrate our faith and extend ourselves to our community. Together we can joyfully lift our voices with open minds, open arms, and open hearts.
