Williams Professor of Church Music and Director of the Church Music Program and the Center for Christian Music Studies at Baylor University where he is a member of the undergraduate and graduate faculties and directs the Baylor University Men's Choir.

His books Christian Worship: Its Theology and Practice (co-authored with Franklin Segler) and From Postlude to Prelude: Music Ministry's Other Six Days, are widely used as texts in classes in colleges and seminaries. His newest book, From Memory to Imagination: Reforming the Church's Music, was published by Eerdmans in September, 2012.
