Kert is currently the worship pastor of First Baptist Church of Georgetown. Kerry serves on the worship team with him and a host of other talented and God-loving individuals.
Kert and Kerry’s heart as worship leaders is to utilize music to admire and praise the truth in Scripture.
For about ten years, Kert and Kerry served a wonderful church family at South Side Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas. Then in the summer of 2016, the Lord moved them further south to Georgetown, Texas. Kert and Kerry work alongside an incredible staff of humble, gifted pastors and families who constantly desire to know the Lord and to make Him known. It is a complete blessing to be part of this family!
They also have four wonderful children, ages 9, 7, 5, and 3, who Kert and Kerry see as their greatest “mission” and discipleship opportunity.
Since their college years, God has been giving Kert and Kerry music and lyrics for songs.
The Lord has used life experiences, sermons and their personal study of His Word to orchestrate songs that sing of who He is and what He has done.
Over the years Kert and Kerry felt an increasing desire to record their songs. Time and again the Lord said, “Wait.” And so they waited … sometimes with gritted teeth.
In the early part of 2012, God began leading them toward fulfilling this long-awaited passion.
They began to have incredible conversations with various people about the recording process and gained a better understanding of what the process looks like. They received overwhelming confirmation and encouragement from both people and the Lord that the time for this project was quickly coming to fruition.
In June 2013 they visited Wellhouse Studios on a whim, and the Lord connected them with the amazing engineer and producer Travis Brockway. He scheduled them to record eight weeks after their initial encounter. The Lord got the ball rolling and it all began to fall into place quickly. However, the funding for the project was still needed. Kert and Kerry never envisioned the Lord to open the door so soon! Thankfully the Lord put the right people in their path at the right time to aid them in the miraculous provision that God had in store for them! It all began with a video:
As the video and many emails spread the word about what God was doing, the funding for their record project came in quickly. It was amazing!
Before they knew it, they were in the studio recording with some of the best artists in the Christian music industry. Travis Brockway, recording engineer for Shane & Shane, Waterdeep, The Robbie Seay Band, and many others, was a blessing to work with! They also had the exciting joy to have Tyler Chester, Joey Parish and Nolan Burke provide the instrumentation for the record.
Kert and Kerry’s first record was released in November 2013 and they have followed up with two singles (“December” and “Come Thou Fount”).
To God be the glory!
