The band is asked -- and at times individual band members are asked -- to assist congregations who are without a worship leader, need to give their regular worship team a Sunday off or are in periods of transition.  Sometimes the band as a whole will lead; sometimes individual band members fold in with a particular church's worship team.  In addition, John is sometimes asked to preach.  

This past year the band was privileged to work with a number of different congregations, including Amelia Community Church in Amelia Courthouse, Va. and Harmony Vineyard Church in Ashland, Va.  And, we have begun 2016 filling in for the worship teams at New Jerusalem Fellowship Church in Prince George, Va. and at Hatcher Memorial in Richmond, Va.  We enjoy assisting in ministry in this way and invite churches to contact us where they are in need of a worship team to assist them in any given week. 

In addition, John is active with a group of believers that come together from many different church communities in the area known as Richmond Emmaus and is active with the student Emmaus community known as Chrysalis.  John asists in leading worship periodically at monthly Gatherings of the Emmaus Community and led music in July for Richmond Chrysalis on a four-day retreat for HS boys.
