My name is Jamie Brown and for over ten years I’ve been writing here at Worthily Magnify, in the hopes of helping worship leaders lead better.
I was born and raised in Florida as a preacher’s kid. I began playing guitar at the age of seven, and began leading worship at the age of 13 in our youth group and on Sunday mornings. Since I was 14, I’ve been leading worship pretty much every Sunday of my life, experiencing all of the joys and trials of church ministry.
For ten years I served on the worship staff of The Falls Church Anglican in Falls Church, Virginia. While there, I recorded three worship albums: “A Thousand Amens”, “For Our Salvation” (an Advent EP), and “We Will Proclaim”. These can be found on iTunes and Amazon. Since 2014 I’ve been the Director of Worship and Arts at Truro Anglican Church in Fairfax, VA. Truro’s corporate worship features a convergence of all sorts of musical styles: classical, contemporary, gospel, and everything in between. Our music is led by a full choir, band, organ, vocalists, and other instrumentalists.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from George Mason University, and a Master of Arts in Religion from Reformed Theological Seminary. I married Catherine in 2006, and we have four wonderful kids: Megan, Emma, Callie, and Jacob, who keep us busy, laughing, praying, and very grateful to God.
