Jamie has a passion to lead others into the manifest presence of God. “Music is a spiritual medium,” says Jamie. “We perceive and receive music not just with our ears but with our spirits. I believe that as we seek Him in purity and humility, the very glory of God can ride upon the music and effect supernatural change in the hearts of those who listen.”
Jamie’s growing desire is to write worship songs for the body of Christ that can easily be sung in the local church, yet also guide the singer to the throne room of God. “I sometimes have trouble finding songs for Sunday morning that are both relevant to corporate worship and spiritually potent. A song may usher in His presence but my local worship musicians can’t recreate it or your ‘average Joe’ conference-attendee can’t sing it. Conversely, some songs are simple enough to recreate and sing but seem lacking in spiritual depth. My prayer is to write spiritual anthems for the everyman.” Jamie’s original songs are in regular rotation in both his church and traveling ministry. “I’m not really interested in being a worship performer; I just want to be a supplier. I would love to furnish God’s people with Body-songs they can bless Him with.”
Jamie’s first full-length CD, Forever, captures his passion for congregational worship. “Whether someone is looking for music to play during Sunday morning services, high-octane youth worship, or just music to soak in during their personal worship times, I believe there is something for everyone on this album.” As an accomplished musician, Jamie played all of the instruments on the CD except for one piano track. He also tackled the roles of engineer, mixer and producer for this project. Jamie says, “My prayer is that God would use these songs to bless His people and that we, in turn, can use them to bless Him back.”
Currently Jamie serves as Worship Leader and Student Ministries Pastor at Victory Fellowship Church in Thomasville, GA. “Our team is not filled with stellar musicians or anyone whose name you would want to drop,” he says. “We are simply a team of imperfect believers who love to minister to the Father and spend time with Him.”
Jamie also regularly leads worship for youth camps, men’s and women’s conferences and community events throughout the year.
