Brad & Rebekah
Brad & Rebekah
As life goes on and circumstances change, we transition from one role into another. We move, we change, we grow. There are seasons. Seasons of good and sometimes seasons of bad, but in all things God’s word calls us to “Rejoice!” It’s a powerful truth all believers must confront, and one that forms the foundation Brad + Rebekah’s new record, “Life Again.”
The pair first met and began singing together while students at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At the time, Brad was part of an all-male worship team that needed a female lead for one of their songs. As fate would have it, Rebekah fit the part, and soon after joining the team, it became clear that there was more than just musical chemistry between she and Brad.
The two continued getting to know each other and soon found themselves falling in love “between worship and watching ‘Gilmore Girls.’” They got married in 2006, and two years later, God opened the door for them to start touring full-time together: “We started traveling in 2008 without really knowing what we were doing, but knowing that that’s where the opportunity was,” Brad says. “And God made it very evident in that time that that’s what we were meant to do.”
Between the traveling and ministering, Brad and Rebekah welcomed their son, Ayden, in 2012, and their daughter, Addilyn Grace, in 2016. Yet even as their family has grown and the musicians have embraced their new role as parents, they’ve continued to travel and focus on their music. Although it can be challenging, getting to share their personal and professional lives with one another has become one of the most cherished and rewarding aspects of their work. “Because we live and work together, none of us are missing out on each others’ lives,” Brad says. “We get to travel together and experience life together.”
The family moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 2014 and currently spend half the year ministering with Christ’s Church of the Valley and the other half of the year traveling and producing music.
On February 1, 2018, Rebekah was diagnosed with a rare form of lyposarcoma cancer. The story seemed bleak, but time and again God provided, moved mountains, and ultimately brought healing to Rebekah.
Brad + Rebekah’s “Life Again” is their eighth career release. Four years since their last full project, it represents a long journey of patience and trust. Together with trusted old and new songwriting friends, Brad and Rebekah have put a bow on Rebekah’s journey, but have also penned songs that will encourage others to lift their eyes and place focus on the One who is above all circumstances.
One of the most meaningful songs they wrote for the album is the title track “Life Again,” which ties in both Rebekah’s testimony and those of Watoto (www.watoto.com), a child care ministry in Uganda birthed in response to the growing number of orphans and vulnerable children in the area. It provides physical, educational, spiritual and emotional care for thousands of children, and vulnerable women and it has been an integral part of Brad + Rebekah’s personal story and career.
