We met in 1996 at a church in downtown Nashville, Tennesse. Alberto came from Santiago, Chile, and Kimberly had just moved from Cookeville, Tennessee. As we began our friendship, we saw that the Lord had given us the same heart of passion for worship and a common vision for the Kingdom of God. When we first began to minister together, we worshipped with songs that had been previously written. However, the deeper we went in our pursuit of the Lord, we sensed Him calling us to take the risk of going beyond worshipping with familiar songs to a new and unfamiliar journey pursuing His presence through fresh, spontaneous songs.
The more time we spent in worship and prayer, the more apparent it became to both of us that the Lord was calling us to more than just a friendship. As a result, we were married in August 9th of 1997.
As we continued to minister, the Lord began to show us His passion for intimacy with His Bride, and we began to experience a sense of the Father's intense longing for His children to draw near to His heart.
We so treasure the songs that the Lord has given us, as they came forth in live settings out of our journey of pursuing the presence of the Lord with people of the same desire to know Him more deeply.
We currently reside in Franklin, Tennessee where we are a part of Grace Center church. We also do some traveling in which we demonstrate and impart what the Lord is teaching us concerning the ways of His Presence.
We have a strong desire to see the Body of Christ experience a greater level of Spirit-led worship and to see the heart of David arise in this hour in multitudes of singers and musicians in every nation. We believe that this generation is destined to tap into the fresh sounds of Heaven and release them here on earth. We believe that when those sounds are experienced, we will see the manifest presence of the Lord released in greater power and miraculous demonstration. We believe that a new kind of music is coming--music of which the sole purpose is to be a conduit for God's presence.
In this day and age, the main emphasis in the music industry is on the artist, the style, the craftsmanship of the songs, the musicians or the quality of the recordings. While these things are important from an earthly vantage point, they are not really all that important from an eternal perspective. We long to release music that will point to Jesus and not merely to the artists or to the music itself. We believe that "Presence" music will be the only thing that will satisfy the hunger and desperation that is intensifying in the hearts of mankind for the presence of the Lord, and will be instrumental in ushering in a revival that will sweep across the nations.
