ARTIST OF THE DAY
Kari Jobe knew at 10 that she would be a worship leader. Raised in a Christian home with a father who was a traveling minister, Kari began singing in church when she was 3. Through high school and college, Kari watched God set the path before her as she began leading worship in various places. She spent time studying at Oral Roberts University, Christ For The Nations and Dallas Baptist University, where she finished her Psychology and Pastoral Ministries degree.
For the past seven years Kari has been a worship pastor at her home church in Southlake, TX. She has been a featured singer on Gateway Worship projects and in 2009 released her self-titled debut album (and promptly won her first Dove award).
In 2012, Kari released a brand new album (and special Christmas edition) called Where I Find You. The new album features the hit songs We Are and Steady My Heart. Kari says the new album is a "clarion call for listeners to experience His presence to the fullest!"
Family Facts: Kari turned 30 this year, but is still deeply entwined with her family, who live in Texas and go to her church. She and her sister Kris have an exclusive line of jewelry and t-shirts where all the proceeds go to the cause of bringing an end to human trafficking and injustice.
