With a heritage rooted deep in Christian music and over three decades of ministry experience, the Cruses offer a dynamic yet intimate worship style that creates a unique atmosphere for people to experience the glory and presence of God.
Joe and Becky began ministering together in 1972. The Cruse Family, an evangelistic music ministry, traveled and ministered all over the world throughout the 70's and 80's. The released 25 albums during this time and were the recipients of two coveted Dove awards in 1978.
In 1990, God planted them in Rockwall, Texas where the husband and wife duo served for five years as the praise and worship leaders for Church on the Rock. In spring of 1995, the Cruses began traveling once again, this time with renowned evangelist, Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne of Revival Ministries International.
Joe and Becky, together with their family and a few friends, finally settled in Austin, Texas in the fall of 2001. After multiple years of training and mentoring young musicians, their long time dream became a reality. WMI branched out to include a strong local church and two schools that provide an outstanding home base for this dynamic ministry. The legacy, integrity, and experience of the Cruse Family, coupled with their heart for God and their passion for His people and His presence is unparalleled in the church world today.
"The passion of our lives has always been to take people to a higher place or worship. Worshipworks Ministries (WMI) and its synergy of ministries was born out of a clear mandate from God and a burning desire to see the nations changed by the power of God and filled with anointed and excellent worship leaders, musicians and artists.”
