Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

Released on 24 January 2012, Kari Jobe's 'Where I Find You' hit No.1 on the iTunes overall albums chart and on the Christian & Gospel chart. Only her second mainstream album, Kari Jobe gives her refreshingly simple message in her honest and down to earth lyrical style.

Multi talented singer with a social conscience, Kari Brooke Jobe, started her singing career at the age of three. A Christian from age five, Kari's commitment to communicating the gospel began with a degree in pastoral studies and psychology at Dallas Baptist University.

Kari Jobe: Recording career

In six years as associate worship pastor at Gateway Church, Texas Kari Jobe worked with her pastor father in mission worldwide and with the church's band, Gateway Worship. Kari appeared on their live and studio recordings coming straight in at no.2 on Billboard's Christian Album Chart with their 2008 live recording 'Wake Up World'.

Kari's recordings on the Gateway Church label were sufficiently well received for mainstream Integrity/Columbia to sign her for two versions her 2009 albums, 'Kari Jobe' and the Spanish language edition, 'Le Canto'. The following year 'Le Canto' took the Dove award for Best Spanish Language Album.  Nominated for Dove's New Artist of the Year, Kari went on to further success on the Gateway Label before being signed by Sparrow Records for her new CD release 'Where I Find You'.

'Where I Find You' and radio single 'We Are'

New from Kari Jobe 'Where I Find You' includes her hit radio single 'We Are'. A song of commission to be the light of the world 'We Are' is a heart-lifting reminder of what Christians are called to be. The key message running through the Kari Jobe's 'Where I Find You' is the sheer joy and beauty of God's presence.

Tracks include the sweet, simple 'I Love You, Lord' straight from Scripture, and 'What Love is This', inspired by the Centurion's realisation of who Jesus was at the crucifixion. Powerful and thoughtful lyrics convey Kari's passion and love for God as a singer and worship leader. 'Where I Find You' is call to whole hearted praise and devotion to a world yet to fully experience true grace and hope.

Designer, craftswoman and anti-slavery campaigner

Along side her music ministry, Kari Jobe is active with the A21 Campaign. Dedicated to abolishing human trafficking in the 21st century, A21 is part of the fight against the modern forms of slavery that affect the lives of 27 million people worldwide. With her sister, Kris, Kari Jobe creates and sells an exclusive line of jewellery and fashion t-shirts. All proceeds from this outlet for sharing God's love are given to the work of the A21 Campaign.
