What do you do here at Riv?
What does it look like to be a music director at Riv?
Many would think I spend most of my time playing music. However, most of what I do relates to working with our church’s musicians in planning, growth in faith, competency, and leadership, and developing ways to better serve the church.
What are some dreams you have within your role?
I’d love to see our team cultivate an authentic and worship response to who God is and what he has done as well as find ways to engage and share the gospel the Lansing area through music.
How do you spend your free time?
Most of my time is spent hanging out with my wife, Angie, and our pets (Nola, Max, Elle, & Rocky) or working on music with my band Last Night Saved My Life.
Top three shows?
The Walking Dead universe, The Office, & Breaking Bad.
Listening to any good podcasts?
Heavyweight, Pardon My Take, & Reply All are my go to’s.
What’s your favorite spot in Lansing?
The Grand River. Boating on the river in late summer/early fall is truly serene and a great way to spend a week night with some close friends!
All limitations aside, what job would you love to have in an alternate reality?
Anything you’re involved in that you’re excited about and want to share with the Riv fam?
As corny as a may sound, I’m excited at what we are doing with music here at Riv. We have so many talented musicians looking to serve the Lord and the community with their gifts. I believe that there are a lot of opportunities for us and excited at what God may lead us to.
