Dr. Pace's intense scriptural understanding and anointing in the area of music ministry, has rendered him a phenomenal teacher and one of the most sought after workshop clinicians and speakers in the country. He recently partnered with Integrity Music to be one of their featured instructors in their “Seminars4Worship” National conference series along side such distinguished christian leaders as Dr. Jack Hayford, Pastor Pete Sanchez, and Don Moen, and he has authored his first book entitled, From Performance To Praise… Moving Music Ministry To The Next Level.
Although he has worked with many renowned gospel artists and is in great demand for his multitude of talents, the spotlight is not something Dr. Pace seeks. His ambition is only to practically and spiritually continue to produce resources that encourage, enlighten, and empower. Then, ultimately, to further facilitate and enable people, through worship to experience Christ on a personal level.
