Ministry. Motivation. Music.
For those who need an extra boost, I also offer faith-based programs that combine motivation, mentoring, ministry, and therapeutic drumming to help people connect with God and their identity in Christ. Drums are provided for in-person events and participants drum with me.
These are customized programs for individuals and organizations that go deeper than my other programs and events. Yes, the techniques can help reduce stress and yes, they’re loads of fun but we also discuss some of the things that can prevent people from moving forward.
These programs are offered at a significantly reduced price. If funding or sponsorship is available, they may be provided for free. I also have virtual drum ministry training programs where I teach one person from the organization how to create their own interactive drum ministry. These are also paid programs but can be covered by a grant or sponsorship.
Why do I do this?
My story and my healing ministry are a result of being miraculously healed after a freak accident that triggered multiple injuries, a concussion, whiplash, depression, and a rare disease. Helping people get unstuck, heal, and move forward became part of my Divine Assignment.
I cannot promise that everyone I work with will be instantly healed. However, I do know that drumming helps people focus, feel better, and find their joy. It also boosts connections, both within groups and individuals. I’ve worked with all ages, including special needs, seniors, and at-risk populations.
This is not African or Shamanic drumming, Reiki, or some type of New Age practice. I’m a Christian and I’m guided by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Therapeutic drumming and drum therapy also happen to be backed by loads of medical research.
Disclaimer: Though what I do is science-based and Holy Spirit-led, healing cannot be guaranteed. However, I can guarantee that people will have fun and feel less stressed!
I’m a percussionist, drummer, and the only certified drum therapist in North Carolina. I’ve also been a mentor for teens and adults since 1995, I have a certificate in Biblical Counseling from the American Association of Christian Counselors, and I’m a inspirational speaker, and an Amazon author.
What does a session or event look like?
For in-person events, I provide hand drums for you or your group like those in the photo. We sit and drum together, starting with some easy beats and rhythms. Then, I’ll add some additional exercises based on the needs of the group or individual. For virtual events, participants drum on whatever they have or just their laps.
Each session usually has a theme for discussion, some beats that go with that, and a song to close out with that’s based on the theme or Bible verse. Sometimes, we rock out and sometimes we’ll do something a little mellower. It’s always positive, motivational, easy, and fun.
God didn’t put you on this earth to struggle. He has a purpose and a plan for you and gifts that you are supposed to use. Isn’t it time to unlock all of those?
