It was like I entered into a new world last month when I agreed to drum at Valiant Conference. I remember many a Christmas receiving gifts to add to my drumkit and my percussion toys. I am truly thankful for the gift of music and what it has taught me about myself. I studied music in college and was even the drummer in a band for 7 years but have been actively pursuing other passions for the last 10 years. If you look past Peter Hendershot you will see me behind him rocking it out on the raised percussion platform. This of course possible after a concentrated effort to learn a dozen new songs for 5 different sets. It all came together and we pulled it off. Although it felt like a new world it was all very familiar and I had a blast. It definitely was an energizing men’s conference reminding us that God is relentlessly pursuing us. However, the challenge remains to live life in humility, honour, and integrity relentlessly pursuing him.
