David Baroni may best be known as a Grammy award-winning songwriter, penning songs for a whos’ who list of Christian musicians. And in addition to writing songs, he has eleven worship albums, several instrumental projects and is the author of numerous books. But more important than his career accomplishments, he talks about his marriage of 41 years to Rita, who is not only a life partner but a minister partner, too. As we prepared for this conversation, David talked about the importance of our Identity in Christ and how God’s grace and strength are made perfect in our weakness.

David Baroni is a prolific songwriter, recording artist, worship leader and conference speaker who has been in full time music ministry for over 20 years. He lives with his wife Rita in Franklin, TN, just south of Nashville. They attend church at The Gate in Nashville.
A Grammy award winning songwriter, David has a passion to know Christ and make Him known. He and Rita, an excellent speaker, author and singer, have traveled extensively in the United States and internationally. David is known for his work with Integrity Music, LaMar Boschman’s International Worship Instititute, and his songs have been recorded by Selah, Don Moen, Ron Kenoly, Debby Boone, Phil Driscoll, Alvin Slaughter, Kent Henry, Morris Chapman and many others.
David’s own CD’s are loved for the depth of lyric, fresh musicality, and what can only be described as the touch of God, Who breathes His inspiration through this gifted modern day psalmist. David and Rita are not afraid to speak of the pain and struggles that they, (like most of us,) have gone through… in their marriage, finances, family dynamics, etc., yet they always point to the grace and love of God Who is the Redeemer.
