Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know more about me! Below you will find some of the works I have done in my lifetime. This obviously is not a complete list, though hopefully this will give you an idea of my skill level and style.
So, let’s get the ball rolling!
Who I will be when you hire me is greatly affected by who I am when I’m not at work. You should know, I am a very blessed man. I have the most amazing wife and four kids. My wife is called to support and encourage moms which she does through the site Chasing Supermom. We have been married since 2003 and have four kids: Hannah, Henry, Harrison & Harper.
I also enjoy many other things such as Music (Both playing and composing), Photography, Graphic Design, Wood Working and Ohio State Buckeye football!
My wife and I run a photography company in our spare time called Lindner Photographic. We would love for you to head over and check out some of our work!
My current joy in ministry is found in being the Lead Pastor of SixEight Church in Vancouver, Washington. We have the mission of being disciples who do justice, love mercy and walk humbly. We are honored to serve this body, and are thrilled to be a part of what God is doing in our community as a result of the committed members of our body. If you’re looking for a great church in Vancouver that is making a tangible difference in the world, I would invite you to come check us out!
I have been a full time Worship Pastor for almost a decade now and served in a part-time role for several years before that which gives me about 14 years experience as a worship leader and worship pastor.
My aim is to inspire a movement of men and women committed to redeeming all art forms for Kingdom purposes; to build authentic Christ-centric relationships with fellow kingdom-servants and to equip the local body of Christ to do the work of the ministry.
I have served as a Worship Arts Pastor at:
- Vancouver First Church of God
- Gateway Community Church
- Calvary Community Church
- Laurelwood Baptist Church
- Vancouver Wesleyan Church
I have been running the blog and podcast, Worship Ministry Catalyst, for almost 5 years now. Our goal is to be a networking resource for all worship leaders and worship team members, serving as a catalyst to facilitate worship in the local church. If you want to check it out, I invite you to check out the podcast, Helping Youth Understand Worship Ministry, it is one of our more popular episodes.
I’m sure one of the things you’re really interested in would be some of my work. Below are a few video and audio samples of me as a Worship Pastor, Choir Director and Songwriter. In the first few videos, I am the guy at the piano. You will notice that I don’t do all of the leading. That is one of the values I hold as a Worship Leader. I believe it is my responsibility to work with and train the local body to do the work of the ministry. That is why I provide these video samples. The third video is also a sample from The Vancouver Christmas Project which was an outreach I helped coordinate among 5 churches a couple of years ago in Vancouver. I am the one directing the choir. Below that, you will also see some audio samples from my songwriting and composing I do, several of which are live recordings.
Thanks again for stopping by, let me know if you want a printed resume or if there is anything else I can provide for you!
