The Founder



Founder, Instruments of Praise

As a saxophonist, flautist, and vocalist, the performing arts have always held a special place in my life. From stages across various countries to intimate church sanctuaries and even the open fields of prison yards, my purpose as an artist has remained steadfast: to weave melodies that stir the soul and lead listeners back to the ultimate Giver of Gifts.

It was during a transformative missions trip to Bohol Island in the Philippines that the vision for Instruments of Praise was born. The call was clear: to equip musicians to carry the message of the gospel through their music, becoming instruments of praise themselves.


Over the years, I've had the privilege of nurturing the talents of countless young artists, many of whom have gone on to become worship leaders and pastors in their own right. Supported by a dedicated team of mentors and instructors, we strive to empower musicians to push beyond their boundaries and use their art to impact not only their own lives but also the lives of others.

Lyrics to the chorus of our theme song –
“An Instrument of Praise”

Lord, I want to be an Instrument of Praise
Living my life for You, each and every day
I want to be an Instrument of Praise
Bringing others joy through the gift You’ve given me
I want to be an Instrument of Praise
To show the world You care
Lord, make a difference through me

And make me Your Instrument of Praise
