Evangelist Kurt LaBouve was born and raised in a Catholic home. Soon after losing his sight to a hereditary disease, he left home to attend a school for the blind. At the age of 18 he accepted Jesus Christ by faith as his personal Saviour. In 1982 he recorded his first gospel song I Just Want To Thank You Jesus in Nashville, Tennessee. Three years later, being heavily burdened to be used of God, he wrote a song entitled Send Me not realizing that in just a few weeks God would call him to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Kurt LaBouve has been serving the Lord with his wife Dale since 1988 as a Baptist preacher in evangelism, songwriting, and singing – all for the glory of God.
