These arrangements combined with testimony, congregational worship, and historical/devotional thoughts about each song will offer a creative and worshipful concert experience for your church.
“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
"Daniel Joiner is a young, brilliant new artist with a creative style all his own.
