Please know that I often perform at two locations on Sundays… in a morning worship service and also later in the day, mid-afternoon or evening. So if you see a Sunday date you like but it has a booking already, there may still be an option for you at the other time of day.  

You can reach me at 319-431-9934 or

I look forward to speaking with you!   + Jonathan
