WORSHIP BAND: OUT OF THE DUST
The husband-and-wife duo Out of the Dust is comprised of Chris and Stephanie Teague who have a story of downfall, heartbreak, and miraculous redemption that is woven deep into the fabric of their music. After growing up in church and marrying young, Chris slowly and quietly lost all faith in God during college. Slipping into the grips of alcohol, drugs and every other whim of his heart, he secretly managed an alter ego for years around church friends, family, and even Stephanie. Finally, everything surfaced one Thursday night in January 2010 as Stephanie’s life unraveled before her eyes. Their young marriage quickly collapsed in divorce as Chris walked away from everything he knew. What happened next can’t be called anything other than a miracle. His independence very rapidly found him in the darkest and most desperate place of his life, and it was there that he was shown the depth of his selfishness and pride. Incredibly, in just over a year, God mended their hearts, restored their marriage, and still continues to breathe new life into their story today. God not only redeemed and resurrected their marriage, but He also gave them a new direction which they had never even dreamed about—music together with a purpose. The release of their debut album led them to perform and share their story all over the country, and they received extensive media coverage including Fox News, The 700 Club, and Family Life Today. Their latest album, Now More Than Ever, was released in September 2019.
