Kari Jobe is a phenomenal and anointed Christian Contemporary Music Artist. She has won numerous prestigious awards, including a Grammy and three Dove Awards. She is a young and beautiful mother and wife, with a fiery passion for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was absolutely blessed to chat to her and to get to know her a little better.
Kari gave her heart to the Lord
as a young girl
Kari was born in Waco, Texas, to parents Mark and Caroline. She has two siblings, Kristen and Caleb. Kari knew from a young age that she was destined to be a singer – she began singing at age three and has never stopped. She gave her life to the Lord as a young girl, asking Jesus into her heart at age five. As she grew older, she attended Oral Roberts University, Christ for the Nations Institute, and Dallas Baptist University and obtained her degree in pastoral studies and psychology.
You gave your life to the Lord at 5 years old, when did you know that you wanted to be a Christian singer and go into full time ministry?
“I was a teenager when I started experiencing the presence of God in worship music. That when we worship and declare truth over our lives and hearts, that it does something to shift the atmosphere around us and give a greater sense of God being at work in our lives.”
