An avid musician since the age of five when he began studying piano, Chuck holds a degree in Commercial Music from Webster University (St. Louis, Missouri) and has played hundreds of events throughout his 35-year career. While working summer stock, he came to realize how important music is when transitioning from one scene to the next. Knowledge he put to work with The United Methodist Church in 1996, planning and producing traditional and contemporary corporate worship experiences. After serving 18 years with the Church, Chuck is now a full-time worship consultant assisting churches with their Music and Arts Ministry as well as visioning for all worship styles.
