Talked to Scott Williamson about you today. I am hosting a worship conference for our teams at my church in Murfreesboro on Sept. 26th. Love to talk with you about being a part. Write me when yu get a chance. Blessings to you!"
Born during the baby boom in 1960 and raised in southern California’s infamous Orange County, Jamie grew up along with two brothers in the shadow of Disney, Fender guitars and Hollywood. He picked up the guitar and made an early discovery that music was to be his profession. Taking a ten year break from finishing college he played in several bands which took him all over the world.
After marrying Brenda, graduating college and welcoming two children, Josh and Betsy, Jamie began to cultivate a relationship with Integrity Music which culminated in the writing of the classic song, Ancient of Days with co-writer Gary Sadler.
Jamie soon became an exclusive writer with Integrity and went on to write and record several worship classics including Firm Foundation, Because We Believe, Garments of Praise (Revival in Belfast) and My Heart (Already There), for artists like Ron Kenoly, Don Moen, Kim Hill (Focus On the Family), The Motor City Mass Choir, Newsong, Truth, Petra, Promise Keepers, Jeff and Sheri Easter, and others. He has several Gold and Platinum recordings to his credit.
Jamie has toured as lead guitarist with artists such as Don Moen and Ron Kenoly and Truth. He has ministered here and abroad with Integrity Music’s Worship International, the Worship Group with Gerrit Gustafson and Maranatha! Music’s Worship Leader Workshops. For four years Jamie played lead guitar with the Maranatha! Praise Band and can be heard on the Praise Band recordings 7, 8 and 9.
Making his home in Tennessee, just south of Nashville, Jamie currently runs his own independent publishing company. He amicably left Integrity Music in 2000 and continues to write, record, do studio sessions, produce, lead worship, travel and speak to congregations throughout the world.
His passion is to encourage the local church to fulfill Jesus’ greatest commandment in Mark 12:28-34: to wholeheartedly worship God while serving others. He also has a strong desire to equip young people in the area of worship through the ministry he developed and leads called Worship Foundry www.worshipfoundry.com. He is currently a worship leader at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, TN (www.wochurch.org)
