Ross is married to the love of his life, Aimee, and he is crazy about his five kids, Zachary, Taylor, Grace, Ethan, and Owen. He and his family moved to Austin, Texas in 2010 to plant the life-giving church, ONEchapel, and it’s been nothing short of an adventure in God’s grace with over one thousand in attendance in less than eighteen months.
He had the privilege of living in Colorado Springs, Colorado for over 18 years and leading worship at New Life Church. As the Worship Pastor, he worked with some really incredible people who he continues to have the honor of calling his friends.
Ross has led worship on several Integrity Music recordings including "I Am Free," the award-winning, best-selling release "My Savior Lives," and "Counting on God." One of his passions has been training and equipping young men and women to lead worship in local churches, which is why he founded the New Life School of Worship in 2002.
Over the years, Ross assembled a team of influential worship leaders and song-writers around him who are all now successful in their own right (Jared Anderson, Glenn Packiam, Jon Egan and the Desperation Band), and their songs have quickly become worship favorites in churches around the world. Ross' philosophy of multigenerational worship has helped shape many worship ministries and churches, and he is a consistent speaker at conferences around the nation.
Ross became the Interim Senior Pastor at New Life Church in 2007 where he provided leadership, spiritual direction and healing for the family of believers in the wake of a moral failure by their Senior Pastor. He continued to help guide New Life Church through their transition under new pastor, Brady Boyd, encouraging this newly blended church family to see the grace of God in the miraculous way New Life has not only survived, but also thrived.
Ross enjoys movies, NFL football, history, reading all kinds of good books, and vacationing with his family.
