It is my strong belief that having passion for what you do is one of the most important elements to success.

I have experienced this in my own life and witnessed it in others enough to believe in it with all my heart.

My belief in passion was reaffirmed at worship this weekend.

Our church has searched for a new pastor of worship and creative arts for four years.

God led our elders and search team to Troy Peterson. He and his family come to us from a large church in Camp Hill, PA.

Troy led our worship service for the first time this past Sunday.

He led with passion!

Our praise to God, with him leading was absolutely wonderful.

His passion originates out of a love for God

Troy said, "I believe that music has a powerful and unique way of penetrating the heart where God can speak not only into the life of a believer, but also to one who is far from God. Corporate worship through music can set the tone and atmosphere for each person to receive the teaching of the Word. In this way, it is softening the ground of the heart to be a fruitful place to plant a seed of God's truth."

So glad your church found a gifted worship leader. We should do all things with passion, as if we do all things unto the Lord and we will be filled with joy!
