WHO WE ARE
A Lifelong Journey in Worship
Michael grew up in the shadows of his father, a Southern Baptist Minister and Pioneer Church Planter. Recognizing his interest in music, Michael's father encouraged him to form a band and to practice "pouring out his heart" in song. Soon it became apparent that Michael's life calling was to lead others into worship through music, his writing and artistic expression.
His songs have been recorded by such worship institutions as Worship Together, Hosanna Integrity, EMI Worship, Maranatha Music, Promise Keepers and many more. Michael's own recordings include Songs of Freedom, Exalt, and Fifty-Thousand Feet.
He has served in staff positions as Worship Pastor,Worship Arts Resource Minister and Worship Leader in several Churches and Evangelistic Outreach Ministries. He served on staff at New Song Christian Fellowship in Franklin TN as a College / Career Pastor where he developed a ministry (XClaim Minitries) that reached 200 students every week through their Worship Service.
"I believe we have not even begun to understand all the ways God would like to use music and the arts. I hope to spend my life discovering, exploring and pioneering new places - new faces in worship..."
Michael currently lives in Knoxville TN along with his wife Marcee of 25 years and their two daughters, Lydiah and Natalie.
