I desire to serve God at Brandywine by using the musical gifts He has given me to lead our congregation in the Worship of Christ and to serve the musicians around me.

Christopher’s favorite verses are Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” and Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end.”
