Amber Barkley and family

Higher Hope is very excited to announce the addition of Amber Barkley to the group. They welcomed Amber, her husband Joel and their three beautiful children, Anna, Kailyn and Stephen, into the ministry in October 2015.
The Barkley family currently resides in Anniston, AL. Amber has been involved with singing and ministering nearly all of her life and she brings not only a wonderful singing voice to the group but songwriting talent and musicianship as well.

When asked about the transition to Higher Hope, Amber stated: “While seeking to move forward in the call of God and to share with many others the songs the Lord has given me, I began asking God to show me His will and through which avenue He would have me to do so. I put my faith to action and decided to attend an audition where I was introduced to Danny and Jenna Byers of Higher Hope. I was impressed with their song ‘All The Way,’ and it began to hold a special meaning in my heart. When the opportunity arose to join and become a member of the ministry, my husband and I began seeking the Lord for His direction and through His words of assurance and confirmation we joyfully accepted the invitation and are ecstatic about what the future holds as God guides!”

“Amber brings a dynamic to this group that we have never had before,” shares group member Jenna Byers. “The peace of God came with this decision and that means so much! We thank Him for answering our prayers and sending us such a committed and ministry-minded couple. Joel is a great asset and serves just about anywhere he is needed, and Amber is definitely talented, but her anointing is even more special. She blesses us every time we hear her, so it’s exciting to know we can share that blessing now wherever we go to minister.”
