The Heart of the Father – Brad & Rebekah

May 14, 2014





It’s an honor and privilege for me to write today’s post about my dear friends Brad & Rebekah. Our friendship began a little over 6 years ago when this amazingly talented couple came to serve as worship leaders at my church. After a couple years they felt the Lord leading them in the direction of traveling as worship leaders and seeing how much God has blessed their ministry has been incredible to watch. This couple is very dear to my heart and I’m so thankful for their friendship.

Brad & Rebekah have released 4 worship albums since 2008 {one of which I got to sing back up on a little bit; no, I’m not bragging *wink, wink*} with several of those songs making radio play, but today I want to tell you about one particular song of theirs that has touched my heart; “The Heart of the Father”. As a friend of this couple I’m fan of each and every song they write, but when I first heard “The Heart of the Father” I couldn’t stop listening to it. After listening to it about 10x I watched the video about where this song came from and what it meant. It’s then that I knew I had to share the story, the ministry, and the opportunity that comes with this song.

5 years ago Brad & Rebekah began a partnership with Watoto by sending musical instruments and helping with other needs through a portion of their CD sales. In 2013 they began selling the Watoto Paper Bead Necklaces and have raised over $30,000 for the children in addition to their CD sales.

Watoto is a holistic care program that was initiated in response to the overwhelming number of children and vulnerable women in Uganda. It is positioned to rescue an individual, raise each one as a leader in their chosen sphere of life so that they in turn will rebuild their nation. For more information on how to get involved or sponsor a life please visit Watoto’s website.


“The Heart of the Father” was birthed over 2 years ago out of a desire to share the story of Watoto. We never imagined it would take this long, but we are so excited to finally see this song come to life! We love Watoto and all the work they're doing in the lives of orphans in Uganda. We've been honored to see the ministry in action, sing with the choir, and visit with our sponsor child multiple times. We can't wait to go back this June and share in the 20 year celebration of Watoto Child Care!

God really has his hand on Watoto. It’s an honor for us to play a small part and be an advocate for their mission to Rescue Raise Up and Rebuild a Nation.” –Brad & Rebekah
