God's touch has been so deep in the Carrick's life that they have the gift of giving their music a spiritual intensity that ministers to the deepest part of one's soul. As they tour the globe giving concerts, missions and special events they have a gift of presenting the real life trials they have lived through as well as the blessings of life in a way that truly brings the listener closer to Christ. Their music can best be described as Adult Contemporary and Inspirational but the range is so wide that these expressions are only a part of their musical genre. Along with incredible music there is powerful witness of a couple's journey to and with Christ. Part of this journey was 15+ years of Liturgical leadership where they have had the privilege of leading excellent music during masses and other liturgical services. Along with witness and music, they present a concert that is geared to fit your communities needs. An example of a theme might be 'Christian Marriage in Today's World' challenges and healings focus. Another focus would be 'Realizing the grace we receive from our sacraments' and how empty we are without them. Kurt brings his skill and gift of guitar and voice as they share harmonies and the life experiences of their marriage. The songs they share together are a great expression of married love, forgiveness and real joy as they recount the blessings they have received from God. They fully live their faith and are called to build up the body of Christ as they share the need for a daily prayer life. All of this is wrapped up and presented in their music and witness and those in attendance are truly blessed.
