Aaron & Amanda Crabb on stage
Friday, May 15, 7:30-9:30 pm
Aaron and Amanda Crabb are no strangers to ministry. Their music has crossed genres, generational boundaries, as well as denominational barriers. They have seen what the power of worship can do in the presence of thousands as well as calm their little daughter in a Vanderbilt trauma unit. They understand that worship is the breaking of ground to prepare for a seed to be sown.
Aaron and Amanda not only sing the gospel of Jesus, they both preach the good news as well. Aaron surrendered the call to preach in November 2002 and Amanda in 2004. They have seen countless lives changed through the power and anointing of Jesus Christ.
They have always had Pastors’ hearts, but until God begin to deal with Aaron in March of 2013 they didn’t know when or where. As the worship leader of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, TX, Aaron began to seek God for direction. While life was comfortable and music was being made, God told Aaron that he wanted him to take his family, leave stability, and plant a church in Hendersonville, TN.
