Will is a 2015 graduate of Ouachita Baptist University where he received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a minor in Christian Studies.  Since then, he has been working in the ministry and feels a stronger call to music ministry almost every single day.

"I feel as though the experiences that God has allowed me to go through have shaped and molded me into the minister that I am today. I realize that I'm younger than a lot of music ministers and I'm so thankful to have this opportunity to be considered for this position, but I'm confident in the abilities that God has given me and I only want to use those for His glory and to accomplish His will."
