A prominent figure in the Christian music scene, Jimmy Owens, along with his wife Carol, etched a lasting legacy with their iconic musicals, "Come Together," "The Witness," and "If My People," which gained nationwide acclaim during the early 1970s.

Jimmy's journey of faith led him to serve as Music Director at Melodyland Christian Center in Anaheim, California, before dedicating his full-time efforts to musicals, children's music, writing, and teaching. The couple co-founded the School of Music Ministries International.

Their hymns, including Carol's "Freely, Freely (God Forgave My Sin)," became cherished expressions of devotion. In 1981 they received a Grammy nomination for their classic children's album, "Ants'hillvania." Carol chronicled their spiritual journey in her memoir, "Chasing Fireflies in the Twilight."

Beyond their musical contributions, Jimmy and Carol collaborated with influential Christian artists and ministries, leaving an enduring impact on the early ministry of the Second Chapter of Acts.

The Owens family legacy continues through their children, Buddy Owens, a teaching pastor at Saddleback Church, and Jamie Owens-Collins, a contemporary Christian recording artist and writer. Jamie's renowned composition, "The Battle Belongs to the Lord," stands as a testament to the family's enduring faith.
