We give thanks to an amazing God for another incredible year at Worship Without Borders and for everyone’s generous part in making us successful. From India to El Salvador, Brazil and more, Maryl and I have seen God move powerfully in worship around the world. Here are some highlights:

WWOB 2013 highlights:

  • February was a great month for both local and international ministry. Bryan Bettis accompanied me to India where we ministered together in New Delhi and Lucknow at the International School of Worship. Bryan’s anointing is so evident as the Indian people received his powerful ministry.
  • Worship Northwest in Salem, OR with hundreds of churches around the NW was an amazing time of impartation to many worship leaders and pastors.
  • In March I joined Asaph Borba and many others in our 2nd Praise and Prophecy Conference at Eugene Christian Fellowship. The prophetic and ministry was unprecedented as we worshiped and saw God move wonderfully every day.
  • Also in March I was privileged to join a team from Abbotsford, B.C. w/ Pastor Roy Rubuliak to El Salvador! Along with local ministry we had a worship conference in Metapan. Many churches came together for a great time of worship, teaching and powerful prophetic release. God has great plans for this nation.

  • In July we returned to Guatemala City at Elim Central Church with Pastor Hector Nufio and his son, Paul, youth and worship pastor. This year we were joined by an excellent worship team from Springfield, OR led by Pastor Danny Trujillo. We ministered in many beautiful sessions of worship and teaching. The worship increased throughout the week as God moved mightily in song and Word.
  • October was exciting as I returned to Brazil after 13 years! Pastor Mike Herron invited me to join him for a Foursquare Worship Conference in São Paulo (the largest city in South America). Though we didn’t have much time, we ministered deeply both musically and prophetically over this large group of worship pastors and pastors from all over the region. Mike spoke a powerful word for the whole Brazilian Foursquare movement that was excitedly received there.
  • In December we joined Mike Herron again for an Oregon tour of his beautiful Christmas musical ‘Glory to God’. Performing in 5 churches across Oregon, this prophetic musical presented Christ’s birth in a brand new light.


For seven years Worship Without Borders has touched hundreds of churches, many nations on four continents and held over 50 local church worship seminars. We have seen the power of God touch countless lives as His worship is released in city after city and nation after nation. New songs are being birthed and prophetic worship is being released as His Spirit moves among His people. We are also seeing an ever-growing number of brand new converts in most services along with healing services everywhere!

In September we once again taught the Life Change Worship Institute, an 8-week worship school for Life Change Christian Center with Pastors Mark and Marla Strong. I also continue to teach at Worship Northwest in Salem OR and I am on the board for the International School of Worship in Lucknow, India, associated with Pastor August Anthony (Assembly of Believers Church) whose vision and strategy has planted over 500 churches with more than 50,000 believers throughout India, seeing Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs coming to Jesus along with miracles and healings!

camry3On a personal note:we want to thank all those who faithfully prayed for us through our rehabilitation after our bad car accident in April. We are ‘almost’ whole physically. And we certainly praise God for the miracle of my cello in the back seat! Speaking of my cello, many places we are going to, now rent me a cello – so I can play prophetically just about everywhere we go around the world! I am presently saving up for an electric cello for international travel purposes.


Our Piano in Worship DVD/book  continues to sell well (special thanks to Eastside City Church in Calgary).pianoinworship-disc-4This instructional book/DVD for flowing in worship is now in 31 nations and 41 states. We are working on getting it into main worship training centers and we also have opportunities to translate it into Spanish and other languages.

Maryl and I want to extend our deep gratitude to the pastors and leaders and friends everywhere for supporting us during this vital time in our lives and in our ministry.  Thank you for your love, financial support and especially your prayers as we labor and worship together. Please let us know if you would like us to come and minister at your church or if we can assist in your worship ministry in any way. We welcome you to jump deeper into Jesus and experience transforming the world in worship with us.
