Worship LeadersKevin and Bethany Paige
When Kevin and Bethany Paige married in 2000, they not only started a family, they started a ministry. They've led worship together at Lindenwood Christian Church in Memphis for the last 12 years. Together they have written and recorded multiple projects, and their song "One Love" has been featured in Worship Leader magazine's "Song Discovery vol. 88" (an international music resource for worship leaders). What Kevin & Bethany are able to bring to worshipers is a unique weaving of both modern rock praise material and traditional sacred music done with an original twist. Their deep roots in Memphis soul music add an enduring thread to their musical fabric. Learn more at www.kevinandbethanypaige.net.
