Simply put, worship is the act of ascribing "worth-ship", true value, honor, and the utmost respect and awe. It's the acknowledgement of bending and bowing oneself to their Creator. Susan believes there can be no higher purpose than to worship God the Father, Jesus Christ His only Son, and the Holy Spirit.
N.T. Wright says "Worship is humble and glad; worship forgets itself in remembering God; worship celebrates the truth as God's truth, not its own. True worship doesn't put on a show or make a fuss; true worship isn't forced, isn't half hearted, doesn't keep looking at its watch, doesn't worry about what the person in the next pew may be doing. True worship is open to God, adoring God, waiting for God, trusting God even in the dark. If we are not worshipping God, we are nothing."
Through music, scripture, prayer, testimony and reflection, Susan has led others in worship from a living room of several people to a church of thousands- for years. Her desire to craft worship experiences that help people see the beauty and magnitude of who God is that ignites authentic devotion to Him - is what she considers her highest privilege and calling.
Susan has led worship not only in numerous churches and denominations, but also for many small groups, retreats and conferences across the country. She has led by herself with simply a piano, as well as with larger bands - playing everything from classical music to rock- from traditional to contemporary. Whether you are looking for someone to lead worship for your church services, or have an upcoming event, conference or retreat, Susan can appropriately set the table for others to focus on God and be reminded of both the greatness and humility of who He is, and our response of offering Him our worship.
"I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with His praise. I live and breathe God; if things aren't going well, hear this and be happy: Join me in spreading the news; together let's get the word out. God met me more than halfway, he freed me from my anxious fears."
Psalm 34:1-4 The Message
