WATS Directors


WATS is the culmination of a dream….actually several dreams, of four guys that have been out there actively seeking ways to resource and train the church and longing for a better way.  Well WATS is it and these are the guys.


The two vets are Doug Gould and Mike Overlin who have been actively involved in the training of the worship community for years. Doug with Shure Microphones and Mike with Yamaha Corporation of America. You may have seen these guys at almost any worship event or conference including CMS Christian Musician Summits, National Worship Leader Workshop, EMI Worship Together Events, Integrity Seminars4Worship, Lifeway’s Music Weeks at Ridgecrest and Glorieta, Technology for Worship’s Worship Technology Pavillion’s etc. You get the idea.

A couple of years back, two more insightful companies engaged the services of a couple of worship technology brothers in the form of Dan Craik from Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems and Daryl Sutton from Martin Lighting.


The ability to work with like minded Christians in a common goal is an unbelievable privilege. The fact that we have the support and backing of industry leaders Yamaha, Shure, Martin Lighting and Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems goes beyond words and we are profoundly grateful to be able to bring this level of training to those whose jobs are so critical…the musicians, vocalists and technicians serving in the local church week end and week out.


So from Doug, Mike Dan and Daryl…profound thanks for helping to make these events such a success and we look forward to seeing you soon.
