Great news out of Nashville Christian recording artist Rebecca St. James in engaged her record label reported a few days ago! Congrats to Rebecca and her new beau!

According to her record label:

Singer-songwriter Rebecca St. James, announced Jan. 3 that she is engaged to be married.

“St. James will wed the man she’s been waiting for — Jacob Fink — on a date soon to be announced,” a news release from her publicist said. “The Christmas Day proposal came at Rebecca’s family farm in Franklin, Tenn., where she was presented the brilliant, solitaire diamond ring. The groom-to-be asked her parents, David and Helen, for their blessing prior to him surprising Rebecca with the engagement ring and his request for her hand in marriage.”

Fink is originally from Colorado and now resides in southern California. After spending two years as a missionary in South Africa, he earned a degree in communications with an emphasis on film production, and the couple met through mutual friends in Los Angeles, the news release said.

“We are truly amazed at finding our dreams and ideals met in the love we’ve found,” St. James said. “We are exceedingly grateful for this precious gift from God.”

For years St. James, 33, has promoted a lifestyle of sexual purity until marriage, lending her talent to the True Love Waits movement.

St. James’ new studio album “I Will Praise You” is set for release April 5, with its first single, “Shine Your Glory Down,” hitting radio Feb. 11. Her ninth book — “What Is He Thinking?” — is due out in September.

A decade ago, St. James released her landmark single “Wait for Me,” which helped spur the purity movement by challenging young people worldwide to wait honorably for the spouse God may have for them.

“Wait for Me has been one of those pillar songs for True Love Waits. Both the words of the song and the purity of the artist behind it have carried great weight with Christian teenagers,” Ross said. “We know from the Reformation and the Great Awakenings that music fuels movements. Rebecca’s Wait for Me would be an example of that phenomenon in our day.”
