CCPC Search Team
First, thank you for taking a moment to look through my materials and for considering me for the Communications Director position. As many of you know, CCPC was my church home for many years before I branched-out professionally into Worship/Arts ministry and other endeavors both in and out of vocational ministry.
It was at Central College that I was saved, baptized, married, and grew in my faith. I had the pleasure of working for both CCPC and CCCA as a staff member in my late teens and early 20’s. It would be a real joy to return home with my wife Melinda, and our daughter, Cadence.
Below, I’ve provided some resources for you to browse at your leisure. First, you will see some buttons/links that will take your to copies of resumé and other such documents as well as links to some of my work.
Further down, you will see some videos and other resources that should help round-out the background of my professional experience.

One of my responsibilities at Denison was the training end-users (faculty and staff) and student workers on campus technology. I have produced a number of video tutorials to help that process. A bulk of my material will be in the "Media Technology Tutorials" playlist that you see embedded below. I add this just to show you my communication demeanor and familiarity with various forms of technology.
For student workers and other ITS technicians, I like to use services like Wistia's Soapbox, and go a little more in-depth with the training...
Music - Worship - Teaching
I spent 5 total years teaching vocal music, leading worship, and doing theatrical direction for Central College Christian Academy. Below is a sampler of some of my work with them.
I served as the Worship & Creative Arts Director at Quest Community Church from 2012-16. When I felt it was my time to exit and focus on being a dad, I did gather materials for potential ministry landing spots. At the time, I was being courted by a few churches from across the U.S., but ultimately (despite the offers) opted to step away from full-time worship ministry.
However, in that time of transition, I was able to pull together some resources for the search firms that were placing me. Below you’ll find a sampling of those materials, circa 2016.

Web & Social Media Management & Design:
You can check out some of the websites I've built and managed (including this one), as well as my social media feeds to see some of my work in this arena. In short, if I didn't take the picture or make the graphic you look at... I edited it in some way. That includes all of the pictures, videos, etc. on this site!
Below is my Instagram Feed for Wallace Creative LLC
A project started in late 2018 with my wife, Melinda. Our goal is to help parents and teachers engage with their kids through music… not kiddie music. We curate playlists on major streaming platforms, provide engagement materials, and compile media to help expand the musical pallet of children.

Other Professional Endeavors:
In March of 2016, I had the opportunity to be a studio musician for a project called The Evolution of Recording headed up by my friend Eric Van Wagner, an audio engineering professor at Otterbein University and GrooveU. Eric is in the process of writing a text book (under the project title), that is both history and pedagogy for students studying audio production. One of the features is recording original music at world-famous studios so students who buy the book can mix tracks from these famous places. Joshua Howey of Feikert Creative made the video below as a trailer of sorts for the session I was on. I played piano and B3 organ on the session, recorded at historic RCA Studio A in Nashville.
