Rebecca St. James marries in San Diego (Photos)

Christian GRAMMY Award-winning singer Rebecca St. James whose voice and personal story of dedication to purity behind her self-written signature song “Wait For Me” encouraged millions of young people worldwide since its release a decade ago, said “I do” this past weekend to the man she’s been waiting for.

Rebecca married Jacob Fink on Saturday (4/23), in a ceremony held at the picturesque Junipero Serra Museum in San Diego, CA. The noon wedding vows, including self-written commitment vows the couple wrote to each other. Both Rebecca’s long time pastor, Rick White of the People’s Church in Franklin, TN, and Chris Schmaltz, the youth pastor who influenced Jacob’s decision for Christ as a teen and later provided ongoing spiritual guidance including marriage counseling for the couple, officiated at the wedding.

Born in Sydney, Australia, St. James has used her celebrity in music to become a passionate “voice,” speaking openly and often on the subject of Christian faith and values agendas with national and international media as well as authoring a series of bestselling books based on her presence and influence as a role model and advocate for purity before marriage. She has been equally vocal about the meaning of “unity” in her definition of marriage.

Rebecca noted in a recent interview with a writer from the Christian Post who asked her for a description of the meaning of an ideal marriage: “I believe both people can be stronger in their calling because of each other. I really see that in Jacob and my individual lives—we are stronger together. We have a real desire to be glorifying to God in our life and coming marriage.”
