Biography

I was born in Pell City, Ala. in 1967 and grew up in a Christian home in Sylacauga, Ala. I was blessed with the ability to play music by ear and served as pianist for the Church of God of Prophecy in Sylacauga from 1981 to 1989. I married my wonderful wife Melinda in 1987. We have two children, Jennifer and Trey. I earned a BEE from Auburn University in 1991 and an MSEE from the University of Alabama in Birmingham in 1993. My professional career as an Electronics Engineer and Operations Research Analyst has allowed us to experience life in Georgia, Oklahoma, and now Florida. I believe God has had his hand over my life every step of the way - even after I lost faith in Him around 1991. I found God again in 2000, and now serve as keyboardist for the First Assembly of God of Panama City Beach, where I'm also a member of a band consisting mostly of young adults, called "Overtly Christian." I started writing songs for God in late December 2002, and have found this to be an extremely rewarding experience. When I see people getting into worship while singing one of my P&W tunes, I feel as if I've accomplished what God put me here to do. God alone knows what is in store for my music ministry, but I seek His will in my life and in my music, and trust that He has it all under control.

Musical influences include Casting Crowns, Switchfoot, Evanescence, and POD.

Lyrics

Crimson Drops of Mercy

Written By: James Moore

Angels watched
In Agony
As Your blood
Poured out for me
From Your hands
And from Your feet
Flowed Crimson Drops
Of Mercy

Your drops of mercy
Still fall like rain
They wash me holy
Forever changed
