Bellarive is a made up word, but it does mean something. For us it all started in 2009. We met serving at a church. We met in the midst of God doing something very profound in our community. He was moving….
The breath of God was bringing life and hope into our church family in an unforgettable way. Eyes were being opened and hearts awakened. Our response was simple and unplanned; we began to sing about it.
Over the course of a summer we spent everyday at my house. For us, it was a gathering place. A place to seek and find God, to make sense of what He was stirring. The days were filled with prayers and songs. Soon, they became one in the same. The house, the environment, the life: it all became very special to us. It was hard to put to words, but encountering God tends to be that way. Looking back, I think God was beginning to teach us not only who He is, but who we are in Him.
