Biography: Brad Pribbenow Brad Pribbenow brings the realities of his life of faith to bear in the songs that he writes. Through his music, he blends the truth of Scripture with the experience of faith-filled living, communicated in a style that is fresh, engaging and appealing to all ages. Brad has been writing and performing songs for nearly 10 years. His musical training started early: guitar at age 8, percussion by age 11, piano by age 14. Brad's spiritual training began even earlier, having been raised in a Christian home as the youngest of six kids. Through his upbringing, Brad saw the love of God lived out in simplicity, faith in Jesus Christ, and service of others. After attaining a music education degree at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire, Brad and his wife, Melissa, began a season of ministry to college students through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Following this, Brad served two years as Worship Director at Bethesda Lutheran Brethren Church in Eau Claire, WI. Both of these ministries helped stretch and establish Brad in his calling to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music and worship. In January of 2002, Brad began full-time work in a ministry of worship and music. One Thing Ministries (OTM) was established to help lead men and women of all ages into a deeper understanding and experience of what it means to live their lives as a spiritual act of worship. Concerts, worship training, worship leading and speaking have all been a part of this active and fruitful ministry. Brad's main goal through his music, teaching and leading is to be a 'worship enabler'. He has the natural ability to lead people into worship, which he effectively does without drawing attention to himself. Brad's music is not only technically excellent--it is theologically profound. The source of his music is his strong sense of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it's relevance to people in our time. Brad's music and ministry seek after the heart of God. An opportunity to hear Brad's music, live or recorded, is an opportunity for God to minister to you. You will hear of God's glory, power and incredible love for us. You will hear God say, 'Draw close to me and I will draw close to you.' Discography Hymns. Volume 1.
