A Brief History Part 2

We started going to church regularly. My dad became more and more involved with ministries (host/hospitality/small group) which in turn made me more involved.  I enjoyed some of this and begrudgingly did others.  I was still drawn towards the worship.  I thought man I’d love to do that!  A few years later we were in the process of moving and in the basement I found my dad’s old 12 string guitar.  It didn’t have any strings or a bridge or a nut but I didn’t know what any of that meant :-).  I asked him if I could have it and if he would teach me how to play.  He agreed as long as I saved up an paid for it to be repaired.  I spent the next few month scrounging up every last penny I could find and finally had enough to get it all fixed up.  

I slowly began to learn how to play.  I was able to play just about as well as my dad, enough to the point where he couldn’t teach me anymore.  I took some private lessons with some great teachers.  I eventually felt confident enough to audition for the worship team.  I spent a good long time learning all the lead guitar parts to the songs.  When the time to audition came I was so nervous.  This was the reason I wanted to learn how to play.  What if they didn’t think I was good enough.  

The audition went well and I joined the team.  It was great being able to help lead others to worship.  I was on the team for a long time.  I lead worship in a few small groups and even lead a few groups.  I became rather burnt out and left the church for a few years.  

And yet again I leave you with another cliff hanger 🙂

It’s my birthday…I’m allowed!
