Biography

K W A
Kingdom Word Abide

KWA, which stands for Kingdom Word Abide, is a gospel recording group comprised of a husband and wife, Willie and Karleen Russ, a daughter, Ayana Russ-Hart, and two family friends, Mickey and Margaret Barber. Willie, Karleen, Mickey, and Margaret all live in Ft. Pierce, Florida, and Ayana lives in Greenacres, Florida. Together they are answering the call of God to record, produce and minister songs of praise, worship, and inspiration to the body of Christ.

The mission of KWA is to offer their praise to God, to edify the believer, and to evangelize to the lost. KWA ministers to the lost as well as to the believer through the Word, with their music, and exaltations - singing praise and worshipping their God, their Savior, and their Lord.

K W A is an outgrowth of PureFire Ministries, Inc. They were previously known locally as the Higher Praise singers and prior to that Deputies of Praise. This ministry is well known locally for participating in civic organizational groups and community churches. The songs are all original compositions written and arranged by Pastor Willie Russ, except for 'Greater Is He', which was written and arranged by Ayana and composed by her father, Pastor Russ. They have recorded one full album, a demo, and this recently released maxi-single entitled "A New Heart". There are currently three songs in rotation on gospelpower.fm – ‘He Was There’, '23', and ‘A New Heart’. Gospelpower.fm is a Live365 online radio station. They are also receiving national radio air play in New York, Texas, Illinios and New Mexico. They have also had featured articles in Gospel Synergy Magazine and INYAEAR Magazine.

The purpose of KWA’s ministry is to bring people of all backgrounds into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Their ministry brings healing, restoration, and praise. They truly enjoy what they do and thank God for every opportunity.

”We praise God for what He is doing and we honor Him with all our efforts in working out the mission that He has called us to”.

PSALM 23

(LEAD)
OH LORD YOU ARE MY SHEPARDED, I SHALL NOT WANT

(LEAD)
YOU MADE ME TO LAY DOWN, IN THE GREEN PASTURES

(BRIDGE) CHORUS
YOU LEAD ME BESIDE THE STILL WATER, YOU REVIVE MY SOUL

(LEAD)
YOU LEAD ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR YOUR NAME SAKE.
AND THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY, OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH.

(BRIDGE) CHORUS
I WILL FEAR NO EVIL FOR YOU ARE WITH ME

(LEAD)
THY ROD THY STAFF THEY COMFORT ME. THOU PREPAREST A TABLE BEFORE ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY EMEMIES.

(BRIDGE) CHORUS
THOU ANOINTES MY HEAD WITH OIL; MY CUP RUNNETH OVER.

(LEAD)
SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY SHALL FOLLOW ME

(BRIDGE) CHORUS
ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE; AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER.

(LEAD)
WHEN THE STROMS OF LIFE ARE RAGING AROUND ME
WHEN THE ENEMEY COMES IN LIKE A FLOOD TO DROWN ME

(CHORUS)

GREATER IS HE THAT IS WITHIN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD
