Hannah Kerr: Ministry at the Forefront of Christian Music

Editorial Team
  • "I've seen artists who are ministry-minded, and it gives me hope for the future of Christian music. When I'm with such artists, I feel like the Lord is pleased, and the future looks bright."

In the ever-evolving landscape of Christian music, Hannah Kerr stands out not only for her musical talent but also for her profound commitment to ministry. Currently on tour with Big Daddy Weave, Kerr has experienced a transformative approach to concert ministry, one that has deeply impacted her perspective and purpose.

“On tour with Big Daddy Weave, I witness a type of ministry I’ve never seen before in my career,” Kerr shares. “They have a moment in their concert where they invite anyone needing prayer to come forward, and they lead worship. My husband, a few others from the team, and I stand at the front to pray for people. This has significantly shifted my focus during concerts.”

This emphasis on prayer and personal ministry during performances has reshaped Kerr’s outlook on her role as an artist. Instead of being preoccupied with ticket sales or merchandise, Kerr and her team are intentional about prioritizing ministry. “It’s easy to get distracted by the business side of things,” Kerr acknowledges. “But we strive to keep ministry at the forefront. The business enables the ministry to continue, but it’s the ministry that fills us up and makes us feel purposeful, like we’re walking in the calling God has placed on our lives.”

Kerr’s understanding of her calling has evolved over time. “I don’t think God called me specifically to be a Christian radio artist who tours. I believe He has called me to be a minister. Whether I’m on tour or leading worship on a Sunday, I need to keep that at the forefront of my mind.”

The constant reminder to see each concertgoer as an individual in need of God’s message is what keeps Kerr grounded. “If we view the crowd as just a crowd, instead of individuals needing to hear something specific from God, we miss the point. It’s crucial to stay ministry-minded, or it becomes draining. We need to look for the people God wants to touch through our music.”

Reflecting on her journey, Kerr credits her growth in ministry to the example set by other artists. “I’ve seen artists who are ministry-minded, and it gives me hope for the future of Christian music. When I’m with such artists, I feel like the Lord is pleased, and the future looks bright.”
