Jack’s involvement in ministries of service over the years would qualify him as a “jack of all trades.” He has taught in several academic areas, been a pastoral staff member, been ordained as a minister of the Gospel, filled leadership capacities involving church and school music, and served as a principal in three small Christian schools. Because the opportunities and needs of small ministries require flexibility as well as creativity, he has also taught art, piano, and voice, as well as writing, arranging, and collaborating on vocal, instrumental, and music/drama works. Set design execution, costuming, and staging have been defining signatures of his efforts over the years.
Jack believes that the joy of performance must be fueled by a love for the Lord. The dedication with which we approach our craft must be a testimony to God’s glory. His desire is that those under his influence will see the joy of the Lord and attribute any successes or accomplishments as being only by His grace.
