Rita is one of the most gifted worship leaders to emerge over the last 10 years. Making Christ famous through the art, act, and physical sound of our worship is Rita’s anthem, and her deepest desire is to see this arise in the body of Christ. Her motto is “To make the Lord famous in whatever I do.” Born out of that deep desire and to see women freed through the Word, worship, and prayer, she started her own women’s conference in 2000 called Fragrant Oil. And in 2008, she began a worship school called DIVE (Deep Innovative Vertical Expression), which trains and encourages upcoming worship leaders all over the world through weeklong intensive one-on-one courses. Staying true to her calling, Rita continues to write new songs and leads worship at churches, conferences, and events around the country. Rita released her first book in 2013, Finding Eve.
