Katherine Clift was born and raised in
Albany, Georgia. She loves warm weather, home cooking,
sweet tea, and Georgia peaches.
At a young age, Katherine gave her heart
to Christ and vowed to serve Him all the days of her
life. Shortly after being saved, she felt a calling on
her life, and her dream was to one day be a Christian
talk show host.
As her relationship with God grew, so
did her heart for worship. She passionately began to
pursue God wanting more of His presence. She knew one
day she would somehow be involved in ministry. Worship
was all over her even when she didnít really understand
what God was doing, and she knew it would always be a
part of her life. She jokes about having the biggest
collection of worship tapes from the Ď80s and Ď90s.
Little did she know that years later she would marry one
of the most anointed worship leaders in the world.
In March of 1990, Katherine moved to
Dallas, Texas with her mother and sister. Her motherís
co-worker told her about a college in Branson, Missouri.
She went to college in January 1991.
She met Bryan at church the summer of
1992. They dated while Katherine finished college and
were married February 4, 1995.
Katherine worked for two fortune 500
companies and eventually became a stay-at-home mom. As
the girls grew older, she started home schooling them as
well as taking care of Bryan and where he needed to be
In July 2009, God began to show Bryan
and Katherine the vision of worship around the world,
and in August 2009, the vision became reality. Daily
Live Worship was formed and the rest is history.
Two years after Daily Live Worship was
started, Katherineís wonderful husband was done with his
worshiping on earth and began worshiping in heaven. In
spite of her profound loss, Katherine has remembered
what God spoke to her about gathering together
worshipers from around the world to proclaim Jesus to
the nations and continues the ministry, living to
Katherine believes worship is a
lifestyle and is much more than just singing and playing
piano. To her, worship is reading the Word, praying, and
heart-felt expressions of praise and adoration to THE
one true God, and staying in His presence day and
night-wanting to please Him.
Everyone worships something. What or
whom do you worship? It is Katherineís prayer that you
will come to know Jesus Christ today and worship Him in
spirit and in truth.
Katherine resides in Dallas, Texas, with
her four daughters.
