May 3, 2010 – 2009’s Best Selling New Artist and Recent Dove Award winner Kari Jobe will join the critically acclaimed Colorado worship band Desperation Band for the “Heartwork” Tour this May visiting the American heartland cities of Fort Smith, Ark.; Irving, Texas; Tulsa, Okla.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Lubbock, Texas; Elk City, Okla.; Colorado Springs, Colo. and Loveland, Colo.

The Heartwork Tour is sponsored by New Missions, an Orlando-based ministry focused on projects in Haiti and the Dominican Republic and which has been closely supported by Jobe. The tour will also be an opportunity to illuminate Desperation Band’s local church Heartwork ministry supporting orphans.

“I have so much respect for both the talent and hearts of all the guys in the Desperation Band, and have already felt God’s presence as we’ve been planning for this tour. I am so excited to be a part of a powerful worship experience in every city on the Heartwork Tour and am going with great expectations of what can happen when God’s people worship together with a united heart,” said Jobe.

Jon Egan of Desperation Band added, "Kari is a tremendously gifted worship leader with a heart for the things of God. Together, we hope to offer a night of worship that glorifies God and moves our audience to care for orphans and children in their communities and around the globe."

On the Heartwork Tour, Desperation Band and Jobe will share the stage for two hours of continuous worship each night. The events will also include a short presentation by a tour pastor encouraging people to get involved with matters of the heart and Heartworks, specifically supporting New Missions with child sponsorship in Haiti.

May 12th, 2010 Community Bible Church - Fort Smith, AR
May 13th, 2010 Calvary Church - Irving, TX

Jobe ( who is a worship leader and pastor at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, was recently nominated for the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for New Artist of the Year. At the award ceremonies earlier this month, she was honored with two Dove Awards for Spanish Language Album of the Year and Special Event Album of the Year (for her participation on Glory Revealed II: The Word of God In Worship). Jobe also performed on the Gospel Music Channel-televised Dove Awards singing “Revelation Song” with Phillips, Craig & Dean. Jobe released her best-selling self-titled debut in February 2009. Produced by Ed Cash, the album contains songs written by Kari as well as co-writes with worship leaders/songwriters Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche, Mia Fieldes, Ed Cash and Klaus Kuehn.

The Desperation Band ( was birthed out of the student ministries of New Life Church in Colorado Springs. The band’s songs are sung in churches throughout America and around the world including favorites such as “Rescue,” “I Am Free,” “My Savior Lives,” “Overcome” and more. They continue to lead worship both within the student ministries and in the main services at New Life Church, as well as at the annual Desperation Conferences. They released their latest album 'Light Up The World' in September 2009. Light Up the World was inspired by “Heartwork,” a student-driven ministry at their church which is helping to build orphan homes in Africa and now gives its title to the band’s tour with Jobe. The students’ “HeartWork” ministry – and the new CD – began with a challenge from a local philanthropist with a heart for orphans. He challenged the youth to give $60,000, and matched that donation dollar for dollar for World Orphans (

Headquartered in Orlando, New Missions ( is a non-profit Christian organization with mission projects in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Since 1983, New Missions has reached the poorest of the poor in Haiti with Christian education, medical care, food, and the establishment of churches. Currently, 10,000 children attend school at New Missions in Haiti.
