Growing up singing, and writing music, they never dreamed they could do it together. The heartbeat of their life and their inspiration is to see a harvest of souls, and mighty moves of God in their generation, and for the church to be united as a family. Together they long to write songs that move the heart of God, and to encounter Him as they live a life of worship. Their desire is for passionate worship and prayer to be established all around the world, as love songs to the Father are lifted up, changing hearts and atmospheres.
