Jenny and Tyler’s Work Resonates With Students Who Fight to End Human Trafficking

Music and Message

Husband-and-wife duo, Jenny and Tyler Somers, shared their stories and songs at Gardner-Webb Oct. 8 and 9. Their visit was sponsored by the University’s Office of Christian Life and Service. The couple use their talents to raise money for the International Justice Mission (IJM) to bring awareness to slavery around the world.

“Their message and music appealed both to the mature Christian as well as to those who are wrestling with faith and searching for answers in an uncertain world,” observed Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University. “They shared their songs, their stories, and their lives with candor that captivated and inspired. Their work with the International Justice Mission also resonated with this generation of students who are incredibly passionate about issues such as human trafficking.”

While on campus, Jenny and Tyler discussed their work with IJM and performed songs from their new album, “There Will Be A Song.”

“We want to live a life of justice, because we believe that is a huge part of God’s heart,” Tyler said. “We feel like the gospel of Jesus is so much more beautiful when there is a tangible act of love happening alongside the truth.”
