At a very young age, God placed in Adam and Mary’s hearts the desire and passion for worship and leading others to encounter God’s love. Adam grew up in Wyoming, leading worship with his parents as a teenager. Mary grew up in Colorado and moved to Tanzania and Kenya, East Africa, where her parents are still full time missionaries. God put them in each others paths and now they live out their passion for worship together.
They now have two beautiful daughters and continue to grow in their anointing for worship, always seeking God’s face and deeper intimacy with Him. They love nothing more in their lives than to pour their love onto the Father and receive His love. They currently lead worship for the youth and School of Supernatural at Community of Hope Church in Casper, WY
