David then served as youth and missions pastor at a local church. During this time they started an international missions organizations, Answering the Call, whose focus was to come alongside people who were suffering in difficult situations due to conflict or persecution.

Their passion is to see the Church rise to her full potential in Christ, praying as Paul did in Ephesians, “I pray that the eyes of our heart may be enlightened, so that we will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe….”

Jordan and Robin have been married in 2012 and moved to Roanoke in 2013. Jordan is from Cary, North Carolina and Robin is from Toronto, Ontario. There is no greater power or profound mystery in the universe than God's love. God demonstrated his love in its fullest form for us on the cross. Our goal in corporate worship is to glimpse the depth of God's love and to offer a response to Him. It is more than music. It is more than words. It is more than prayer. It cannot be achieved by one person or one band. Rather, corporate revelation and response needs an entire creative and vulnerable church body - offering songs, words, and prayers together, as one. As leaders, Robin and Jordan are passionate about doing all they can think of to facilitate a corporate, creative, empowered, and vulnerable worshiping body.
