Who are you?

I’ve had this blog for over 5 years and it’s gone pretty much unnoticed for most of that time. But in the last month or so I’ve been inundated with more visits than I’ve ever had before. Thanks to getting some articles of mine republished on TheWorshipCommunity.com,  ChurchLeaders.com, WorshipIdeas.com and Musicademy.com, my readership has grown tremendously in the past few weeks. It’s both exciting and humbling at the same time to realize that my audience is growing. 

But what I really want to know is who are you? There are way more readers of my blog than those who comment or interact with me online. So let’s get to know one another! Leave a comment below telling me who you are, where you’re from and, if you’re involved with a church, what’s your role there – are you a worshipper in the pew or are you on staff in some capacity (or something in between)?

I’d love to get to know you and what you do – it’ll help me focus my writing to (hopefully) be even more helpful for you!
