Kari Jobe And Husband Were Best friends for Years Before Wedding
Kari's husband is non-other than Cody Carnes, a popular name in the US's religious scene.
The couple first met in 2010, soon after which Cody joined Kari's band as a member. With the sway of time, they became best friends and remained so for around four years. Eventually, they started dating in 2014. Interestingly, after three months of dating, their wedding moved in quickly.
Cody proposed to Kari with a round diamond ring he had purchased with the savings he did for four years in advance - even though he didn't know who he was eventually going to marry. Without a doubt, Kari accepted, and they tied the wedding knots at a grand ceremony held on a stage on 21 November 2014.
Kari donned a white laced mermaid gown for the ceremony, and Cody wore a black suit with a matching black bow tie.
Worship Leaders: Kari and Cody Offered Free Worship Sets In Easter
Kari is a well-respected personality in the Catholic world. She began worshiping when she was 13, and ever since, she has been guiding people towards God's presence, or so she says. Here’s where it gets interesting, Kari isn't the only hardcore Christian in the family; her husband, Cody, is also a worship leader. In his worship leader bio, he claims to be “ passionate about creating space where innovative artistry and authentic worship can collide.”
Interestingly, their religious affiliation is very apparent: the couple serves at their home church, The Belonging Co., in Nashville. They even offered free worship sets from home on Easter occasion, in April 2020, to lift everyone's spirit during the pandemic.
Cody and I are so excited to offer free worship sets from our home—to churches. We’ve been praying about how we can resource the church in this time and think this could be helpful to encourage your church in worship and give your team a couple of weeks’ break from the crazy new streaming world we all find ourselves in. We love you all. karijobe.com/churchstream (link in bio) for more info! Tag your pastor or worship leader in the comments! PRAYING for all of you during this time. And Happy Easter!
