Pastor - Worshipper - Teacher - Arranger - Composer - Orchestrator - Artist
I have been blessed with the opportunity to have performed, recorded, & shared the stage with some of the JAZZ GIANTS like: Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Ray Brown, George Bohannon, Alex Acuna, Abraham Laboriel, Paul Jackson Jr, Kirk Whalum, & Bruce Forman. By far the best of all has been the honor of leading worship for my King with some of our MODERN WORSHIP INNOVATORS like: Paul Baloche, Scott Reed, Leann Albrecht, Cheri Keaggy, and Bryan Duncan.
My Berklee College of Music education has allowed me to get comfortable on several different instruments; piano, vocals, saxophones, bassoon, ewi (Electronic Wind Instrument), keys, organ, guitar, bass and drums etc... My musical expression has been cultivated from a love of jazz and the fusion of latin, rock, R&B, and gospel. I have worked with groups of all sizes and am equally comfortable with a trio as I am writing and arranging for a full orchestra.
I have been actively serving Christ since 1993. I am a licensed and ordained minister with International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. I have had the pleasure of serving as a Worship Arts Pastor, Executive Pastor, Community and Groups Pastor, Men's Pastor, and District Administrator overseeing several churches.
My wife is an incredible women of the word and worship. She plays some pretty groovy bass and sings a strong alto while modeling worship with a great sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. She has a passion for worship, young adults and for the women. Lisa has been very effective in ministry serving as an Associate Pastor, Administrative Assistant, Small Groups Pastor and Women's Ministries Pastor.
As far as doctrine and what I believe, see this website: http://www.foursquare.org/
In addition to that I believe working full time in the ministry to be a uniquely special thing. I believe God wants us passionately engaged, seeking after life changing transforming worship!For example; in the secular world (and certainly in the entertainment world) everything you do is about making yourself better than the other guy or making yourself more valuable by doing things other people can't. I believe in the ministry world we are called to something almost the polar opposite of that philosophy. I believe I have done my job (calling) well when I have reproduced my self in someone. My goal is to find areas in the ministry that need to get off the ground and I start them up then train in other leaders who hopefully do it better in the end than me! Once that is accomplished there is inevitably another ministry task needing help getting up on it's feet so I dig into that one.

MAJESTIC : by Jason Silzle ©2005
Psalm 8:1 - O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 29:4 - The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic
Psalm 145:1-2 - I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
CHOSEN : by Jason Silzle ©2005
1 Peter 2:4-9 - As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.  For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."  Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,"  and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. "They stumble because they disobey the message--which is also what they were destined for.  But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
