Lead Guitar and Vocals
What was the first Christian album that you bought or where given?
The first Christian CD I remember buying was DC Talk Jesus Freak. It still rocks.
What was the most influential person in your life during your High School years?
Any upperclassmen who wanted to hang out with me. Did you hear that Juniors and Seniors?
How hard is it to manage your life on the road vs. your life at home?
Lots of prayer. I pray when that when I'm home, God maximizes the time He gives me with my family and my church and when I'm out, I pray that He unites us as a band being like-minded so that we can pour into His church.
What is the funniest thing that has happened you while on the road with Casting Crowns?
I still laugh about jumping up and down and my guitar coming crashing down to the floor. I think even the Holy Spirit was laughing
Who is your favorite super hero?
Bible man? Wolverine was the only one I ever knew anything about as a kid. Most of my heroes growing up were baseball players. Ryne Sandberg, CalRipken Jr., Ozzie Smith, Dale Murphy, etc.
Who is your current favorite musical artist/group? Why?
Switchfoot, Needtobreathe and The Afters can do no wrong for me. If either one of these bands decided to sing "This Is The Song That Doesn't End", it would be the coolest song ever. EVER!
What is a largely unknown skill that one of the other Crowns member that should be shared with everyone?
You wouldn't think Melodee could hit the way she does by her size. The only explanation is her hand weighs 50 pounds.
What is the best advice someone has given you about working with youth groups?
1) Bobby McGraw: "Effective Ministry happens when Godly resources meet human needs through loving channels for God's glory."
2) Mark Hall: "You have to earn the right to speak to teenagers."
3)Francis Chan (I'd love to meet him personally someday, but this is a quote I read out of "Crazy Love"): "When we work for Christ out of obligation, it feels like work. But, when we truly love Christ, our work is a manifestation of that love, and it feels like love."
If you weren't in Casting Crowns, what would you be doing now?
Trying to get into Switchfoot. But seriously folks, leading worship or doing graphic design somewhere.
