Pastor Jason Hatfield, of Living Love USA, is a worship pastor in Peoria, Illinois. His wife, Maria, is the daughter of the founders of Living Love, Ed and Gloria King. The organization was founded in Honduras, C.A. There are many churches in Central, South and now, North America. Together, Maria and Jason, are the Senior Pastors of a small bi-lingual congregation. Jason grew up in central Illinois. He comes from a very musical family. Having grown up in church, he has understood he has a calling to lead God's people into His presence, and is totally committed to the task. About 10 years ago, God began to move upon Jason to perceive that he had also been called to write worship songs. In the early stages, Jason was struggling to find his style of writing and was not content with mainstream contemporary worship. Jason began to devote all his time and energy to seek God's face for musical direction. Jason began to search for that niche in music that would be his. He recalled that having grown up in the 70s, there was no music so happy and free more than R&B. He began to remember how funk and disco always made him excited and inspired. But, could this be OK to do in the church? The vision of "Spirit Groove" is not just great music. It is intended to bring an atmosphere of freedom and intimacy into worship. Jason's approach to making this album has been deliberate and clear. A musical groove has power. It can lift up and excite. It can stir passion for the presence of God. Jason does not seek to perform. His purpose is to inspire passion and pure devotion that will be acceptable to God. When God's presence descends, miracles happen.
