In the Fall of 1996, Earl came to Church on the Hill with one goal: to lead a congregation into the presence of God through music. Now starting his 27th year on staff, that goal hasn’t changed. He currently leads a team of talented worship leaders and instrumentalists who share the same purpose. His great desire is also to help people see worship as more than music. He just celebrated his 42nd anniversary with his wife, Lisa. They have three married children and five grandkids.
