Jamie is the creative mind behind all things Go Fish. He became a Christian while attending a concert as a child so he knows firsthand the impact that music can have when it comes to reaching kids for Christ.
"I had grown up in the church, but for some reason when the guys in this band shared the gospel it just clicked for me. All that I had learned from my parents and from my church came into a new light and I knew that I needed to get right with God. I was a sinner and needed to be forgiven. That event has shaped my life and I've been following Christ ever since!"
Since Go Fish's beginning, Jamie has co-produced and written most of the band's songs. Recently he also won a Dove Award as a producer on Denver and the Mile High Orchestra's Groovy album which was released under the Go Fish Kids (GFK) record label. While music will always be his first love, recently more and more time has been focused on Go Fish Resources which is a new company focused on providing gospel-centered resources to the home and church. This company was started in response to the overwhelming support Go Fish received after self-publishing VBS curriculum.
"Go Fish Resources fills a huge need in the curriculum world. There are some resources that have great theological content but aren't able to provide elements like high quality music, videos, etc. On the flip side, there are companies who provide all the "bells and whistles" but a high view of Scripture is most definitely not a priority. Our goal is to provide churches with the best music and videos on the planet while making it clear that those items are secondary to solid biblical teaching and a gospel-centered approach. At the end of the day, our music isn't going to save anyone, but the gospel will!"
Jamie and his wife Julie (who writes and oversees curriculum development for Go Fish Resources) have 3 boys and live in western Wisconsin.
