What I do: With a significant portion of my role devoted to assisting Trinity Western University in developing worship leaders through their program, my role at Northview is to support the various venue leaders and teams as they function weekly, and to lead as time allows in a variety of venues. I also oversee the running of our recording studio, equipping others to make use of it, and utilizing it in support of creative projects from both Northview and TWU.
