Terry & Barbi Franklin were asked to sing at a friend’s wedding reception. That simple invitation began opening
doors all over the world. For over 32 years they have ministered with the theme, “Inspiring Love in the Home &
Revival in the Church” through their family worship events and marriage seminars that have taken them all across the U.S. and 39 countries worldwide.
Terry & Barbi possess a burning desire to see God bring revival in the Church – a Revolution of Repentance – starting inside our hearts and homes … and spreading to the whole family of God. This has always led to spiritual awakening among the lost. Many pastors have praised Terry and Barbi’s Worship and Prayer Events for having ignited a fresh commitment to passionate individual and corporate prayer, more vibrant worship, and greater hunger for God and His Word. Even in their Marriage Retreats, they see the fruit of pouring out their hearts and stories, inspiring a vibrant growing relationship with God and commitment to prayer and worship between couples. They have ministered in over 7,000 churches, camps and Bible conferences as well as authored a book designed as a prayer devotional for couples. As songwriters, they have had noteworthy success. Artists across a wide range, from The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir to Carrie Underwood have recorded their songs. They have won Dove Awards and had numerous award nominations and charting songs, but more important to them are the revived lives and healed marriages and families they have seen through the years as God has used them.
In addition to their singing, Terry plays piano and Barbi is a gifted violinist that has recorded two well-received “Violin Worship” CD’s. Both come from music ministry backgrounds. Barbi grew up singing with her widely-known family, The Murk Family, who were featured in the largest churches in America as well as Bill
Graham’s Crusades from 1963-1983. Terry sang with various groups, including the Gaither Trio and Vocal Band from 1992-94.
Through the years, they have continued to minister with many well-known Christian leaders and artists such as Billy Graham, Jim Cymbala and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Focus on the Family, Coach Bill McCartney and Promise Keepers, Adrian Rogers, Jack Hayford, Steve & Annie Chapman, Bill & Gloria Gaither, David Jeremiah, Kay Arthur, Gary Smalley, Josh McDowell, Don & Tim Wildmon and The American Family Association, and many others. They have 2 sons, Tyler & Travis that are both married now. After over 32 years of ministry, they still encourage family integrity, unity, repentance, prayer, worship, and renewed hunger for God, and their heart cry is still to see revival and awakening for a Harvest of Souls.
