II Corinthians 12:9 says, “But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.” This is the scripture that defines Jacksonville, FL based worship band, BY GRACE. Not only does it define their band name, but also it reveals the source of the selfless lyrics heard in their songs. It is the truth by which each individual member lives their daily lives and the foundation of what inspires their work as a band: less of us, more of God. Austin Adamec (21), William Smith (19), Asher Adamec (18) & Robert McMinn (19) grew up in the same church and have been playing together since 2001. In addition to playing together in their youth group's band, Austin, William and Asher played integral roles in the YouthQuake Live worship band. YouthQuake Live is a non-profit evangelism outreach to local area teenagers. Because YouthQuake attracts nearly 2,000 attendees to each monthly event, these boys have already had the opportunity to lead over 100,000 people into the Presence of God through the years. Currently, Austin and Asher are attending college at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Austin is the worship leader for UF’s enormous campus outreach, Campus Crusade for Christ. Asher is the drummer in the Crusade worship band. William is a full-time student at Florida State College at Jacksonville, where he continues his work with YouthQuake Live as a worship leader of the band. Robert will also be attending Florida State College at Jacksonville this fall. William and Robert are heavily involved in their home church as members of the praise band and the college ministry worship team. Although they live in different cities, the creative process is never ending. They are in constant contact and look forward to their weekends and holiday breaks when they can come back to their hometown and worship as one. It was Austin, William, Asher and Robert's passion for worshiping God that brought them together as young teens; and it is that same passion that has kept them together in the band, BY GRACE, through the ever-changing seasons of their lives.
