Brian & Christa Yak, husband and wife, are For The Fatherless. Their name as musicians is founded on their experiences as children, growing up all too familiar with feeling fatherless. Christa lost her father from a brain tumor when she was seven. Addictions led Brian’s dad to abandon his family. Today the couple is leading worship and sharing their stories and original songs to seek God’s grace for each person, so they may realize the fullness of God’s love for them as His children!
