Kay Crawford began pioneering prophetic worship more than 20 years ago. Since that time, she has led worship in Europe, South America and Asia, as well as in many states in the U.S. She has taught in worship seminars and workshops all over the world and has been a guest teacher at prophetic schools in France, Germany and Switzerland. She has also been a keynote speaker at prophetic worship conferences in Oklahoma and in Colorado.
She has written many songs and produced four CDs geared toward prophetic worship. She has written a book entitled "Prophetic Worship: Releasing the Songs of Heaven into the Earth", and is currently working on her fifth CD, to be released in late 2009.
Her songs have a way of opening people’s hearts up to the Lord. God’s presence comes in unusual ways when she leads worship; when Kay worships God, He comes down to listen and fills the place where she is with a remarkable depth and intensity of His Presence.
She has been married to her husband, Jack, for 36 years and are the parents of two adult children. They are the pastors of Harvester Church in McAlester, Oklahoma.
“Prophetic Worship: Releasing the Songs of Heaven Into the Earth” explains what prophetic worship is, the scriptural basis for it, and how to implement it in your life and the life of your church. Chapter titles include “Intimacy with Almighty God”, “The Prophetic Song”, and “Worship in Heaven”. At 69 pages, this book is easy to read, but filled with information that can bring your worship time out of the earthly realm and into the heavenly realm as you soar with the eagles as you worship God.

Bonnie Barbey has a very colorful range of experience in life, from being a park ranger to teacher to working in deliverance and inner healing ministry. She has always been fascinated with written words, whether in creative stories, poetry, or lyrics. Bonnie began writing music in about 1989 and is still telling people she wants to be a song writer when she grows up. When asked, “Why do you write songs?” her answer is, “I can't seem to help it! There is just constantly music going inside of me, and I always seem be writing lyrics in my mind. I love to worship, and I know I am in a healthier place spiritually when each time I awaken at night, I have a worship song in my spirit. Some of my music, I just wrote down from what I heard in a dream, so I consider it heavenly worship. I believe that I have an intense desire to glorify God, encourage others, and take a look at the real world through spiritual eyes. I hear God’s voice the best with a pen in my hand, so most of the lyrics I write are what I believe God is communicating to me or through me. Many of my songs I term "blood and guts" songs, because they express real pain and struggle, doubt and fear, and mesh nicely with a minor key melody. The lyrics often express what I am experiencing at that moment or season in my life. They tend to be very much like the Psalms though, beginning with a primal scream, but coming to a place of peace and faith by the end. I can't have people slitting their wrists after listening to my music, now can I? These are meant to be songs of healing and encouragement, even when dealing with painful or difficult topics."
Bonnie has been married to her husband, Todd, for 31 years and they live on a horse ranch in Durango, Colorado. They have two adult sons who are out on their own, 15 horses, three dogs, three cats, and numerous fish.
