It has arrived!

Mission is a collection of songs written over 8 years with and for the children of Saint Paul’s Church in North Canton, OH. What started it all, was a project with the fourth graders who were working on writing their own personal mission statements. They partnered with someone they identified as a mentor and then began the process of exploring the calling that God had for each of them. Each year a class would get together with me and we would discuss the ideas that were important to them: Service, Making a difference, Following God’s Word, etc.. Using musical Styles that would best bring out the ideas and the unique personality of each group, I came up with a song that they could call their own. Over this time as well, I would be asked to write something for a particular Mass who’s theme was this or that, or for a particular workshop that they were involved in. With the church’s youth group as well, I wrote songs about issues that were important to them.

Now my mission is to spread this journey of faith and music with the world to hopefully inspire and continue the work God started in our parish. Peace.
