Background

In 2005, Geoff moved out of his engineering career into full time ministry. Three years later, Geoff released his debut recording Jesus Only which includes the Covenant award-nominated song "Remember Me." He also received a Master of Worship Studies degree from the Robert E.

The professors really promote in-class discussion and I thrive off of that. The level of the engagement the professors show in their material encourages me to also have a deep level of engagement.
