Beyond Sunday Worship exists to help worship leaders, songwriters, creatives, and church leaders get to the heart of the matter. We have a passion to love God, serve people, lead our teams, and hone the craft of local church worship ministry.
I'm David. Just a simple guy with a passion for Jesus, the church, and using music to shine a spotlight on the glory of God.
Sometimes it's hard to reconcile the big concert stages with the every day practicality of ministry in the local church. I want to help connect the dots. My writings are brief, practical, and applicable to being a creative leader in the local church today. Thanks for stopping by.
I am a Worship Pastor at Allison Park Church in Pittsburgh, PA. You may or may not be a worship leader. Even though I gear my writings towards that audience, I write plenty of content on worship, leadership, songwriting, music, and creativity.
