Meet The Team
Even though I have been interested in music and developing slowly as a musician over many years, my actual career is as a licensed Christian clinical psychologist which I have done for over 30 years and even though I could retire I am continuing to work on a part-time basis because working with people inspires me. My background as a psychologist and as a student of God’s word has been very helpful in understanding the spiritual, emotional, cognitive and behavioral applications of God’s word. I discovered I could song-write 13 years ago and have been developing the craft ever since with the help of books, videos, lots of listening and 3 superb coaches. (1 of them is involved in this project as well) Songwriting is my passion. Every song I write feels like a discovery to me… then I go about the work of editing and polishing it. I have written over 400 songs but most of those have been “practice” leading up to better skills. I feel absolutely called by God to this type of music that hopes to bring His word alive in a new way!

He and his wife, Kathy, continue to travel worldwide bringing songs of hope and healing to the nations through worship.
Of his music, Bob says,
“I think that accomplishing some sort of ministry by playing music is a completely faulty, frail method that God still manages to use. My primary goal is to communicate truthfully with people. If I can communicate truthfully the life of the Spirit and the always-accompanying struggle along the way, then ministry happens as a natural result of that. If something deep and profound happens, I’m as amazed and grateful as anyone else!”
Deliberately subjective in his lyrics, Bob Bennett allows listeners to eavesdrop on his personal observations and then decide for themselves if the words ring true. Ultimately, he reaches into hearts, using his abilities to craft language and music to tell the stories inside each of us.
