He opened for DC Talk, Delirious, and his favorite, legendary blues man - Peppermint Harris. 

He has also played guitar and toured with Christian music pioneer Bob Kilpatrick. His song, "I Saw An Angel", was in heavy rotation with secular radio, including Sacramento's KGBY Y92.5. He has recorded and nationally distributed 5 solo albums, and is signed with the Los Angeles publishing group, "The Music Library", writing music for TV, Movies, etc.

Will studied with the Musicians Institute of Technology, and is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

In Will's words:

"I've been told that being a musician or worship pastor (or any ministry for that matter!) is not a wise career path to venture down. However, God began teaching me how to offer my talents and live my life for Him, and increasingly the culture's standard began looking very unwise. I think that a big piece of my calling as a worship pastor and musician is to invite and welcome people into the presence of God, so that they too might experience the transforming power of God, and step into who God created them to be regardless of what society or culture is pressing them to be.

Romans 8:28-31 says: 'We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God—those whom he has called according to his plan. This is true because he already knew his people and had already appointed them to have the same form as the image of his Son. Therefore, his Son is the firstborn among many children. He also called those whom he had already appointed. He approved of those whom he had called, and he gave glory to those whom he had approved of.'

What can we say about all of this?...If God is for us, who can be against us?"

"My hope and blessing is that God’s confidence in you
will overwhelm and clarify who you are in Him. Remember, if God is for you, who
can be against you?"
- Will Derryberry
