After being established as one of the industry’s premier worship leaders with her Dove Award-winning, self-titled debut just three short years ago, Kari Jobe continues to lead worship at home and abroad.
Singing at age 3, becoming a Christian at 5, graduating from Christian colleges and earning degrees in pastoral studies and psychology, and now working as a worship leader, the barely 31 year old Kari continues to grow in service and ministry. She released her highly anticipated follow-up album, Where I Find You in early 2012, and embarked on the Where I Find You Tour in September with her friends in the band All Sons & Daughters. They are wrapping up the tour the first week of October - the 5th at Calvary Baptist Church in Joplin, MO and the 7th at Riverside Community Church in Peoria, IL.

Taking her worship opportunities and ministry outlets seriously, Kari has partnered with the A21 Campaign, an organization dedicated to abolishing human trafficking in the 21st century.
“I’ve become really invested in that ministry and strongly believe that we all have to play a role and do our part to fight against the modern form of slavery that affects 27 million people and growing,” Kari says. “It’s so incredibly dark, and I feel a responsibility to do what I can. Most of these victims are girls like me, and I can’t imagine what life would be like to be stuck in that place.”
Along with her sister, Kris, Kari has created an exclusive line of jewelry and t-shirts in which all the proceeds go to the cause of bringing an end to human trafficking and injustice. Find out more at http://karijobe.com/#!/ss:facebook
“Whether I’m participating in an effort like this or leading worship, it’s all about making a difference,” Kari concludes. “That’s the reason I’m doing what I’m doing at this specific moment—to see God’s name lifted high, to encourage the hurt and the broken and to remind everyone to draw close to Him because He really, truly does care about each and every one of His children.”
And that’s ultimately the message behind Where I Find You, enjoying the beauty of God’s presence, praising him with your whole heart and letting your light shine in a world that needs to experience the true grace and hope found only in Jesus, she said.
