I believe that worship is simply a response to a revelation of Who God is and my desire is to see God exalted in our midst and His people wholeheartedly responding! Being called when I was 17, I have had the privilege of being able to lead the body of Christ in Worship for the past 35 years, 21 of those years have been here at new Life Church. I am so thankful to serve with such a talented group of musician's and singers who love Jesus. Glenn and his wife Julie have 4 wonderful boys who all share a love of music and are gifted musicians. We have a precious granddaughter who is truly a blessing!
