NASHVILLE, Tenn.—For The Fatherless, the self-titled debut from singer/songwriters and worship leaders Brian and Christa Yak, bows tomorrow. Offering Hope for all who have lost or not known an earthly father, the husband/wife duo celebrates the ultimate healing found in God’s love.

With each of the project’s 10 selections penned or co-penned by Brian Yak and four songs co-written by Christa Yak, For The Fatherless also features songwriting collaborations with Dove Award winners Jeromy Deibler, Krissy Nordhoff and David Moffitt, among others.

Highlights of the album include “Not of the Night,” the vibrant pop opener inviting listeners to experience freedom in Christ; fresh worship offerings “My Anchor True” and “The Time of Singing Has Come”; and “Unfailing Father,” a poignant ballad showcasing the heart of the couple’s mission.

“There are some songs you write and some songs that write you,” Brian Yak says of “Unfailing Father.” “We wrote this song before I met the earthly father who abandoned me 24 years ago. Every time I feel the weight of offering him forgiveness and making it true in my life, I find myself coming back to God, brokenhearted. When we sing ‘search no farther than the unfailing Father,’ I'm singing to remind my heart to trust the Lord to never leave me or forsake me.”

“We both know the feeling of growing up fatherless,” adds Christa Yak, who lost her dad to cancer. “It's something that needs to be addressed in the Church. We all share the same Father who loves us more than we can understand, regardless of our experiences with our earthly fathers. I pray our music can help provide healing for those who have been abandoned or have lost their earthly fathers, as well as draw people to Christ’s heart for the first time.”

Meeting as students in the selective vocal program at Nashville’s prestigious Belmont University, Brian and Christa Yak were married last year. In addition to For The Fatherless, the couple serve as worship leaders at The Chapel at Crosspoint in Buffalo, New York.
