Over the next several years Kim and Reneé gave birth to Joshua in 1978 and Kimberly in 1981. As the children began to get older, she decided that she wanted to play the instrument of her childhood dreams. She bought a flute and asked God to teach her to play. To this day, she does not formally know a note on the flute, but she plays heavenly. She plays her flute prophetically and her husband Kim says that she “prays” the flute.
When Joshua and Kimberly were nearing high school age the family moved to Arkansas to begin ministry with worship and youth work. They considered themselves missionaries from the Wellspring Christian Center of the Foursquare Church. From 1993 to 2000, Reneé and her family worked with six churches directly and around thirty churches indirectly. The Wildey Family worship band was well known and sought after in the south-western section of Arkansas.
Reneé was working at the McDonald’s restaurant in DeQueen, Arkansas in the lobby… greeting people and serving refills and whatnot. A gentleman stopped her as she was working one day and said that he had been in for coffee for quite some time and had been watching her. He said that either she was a Christian or she was crazy. He said that he had never seen anyone being so happy even when they were mopping floors or cleaning the bathrooms. She acknowledged that she did everything “as unto the Lord.” It turned out he was a pastor at another church in that area of Arkansas and asked if the rest of her family was as “crazy” as she was and would they come minister in his church.
During their tour in Arkansas the family became the first white people to join all black church (Mt. Zion Methodist Church) in Horatio, Arkansas (1997).
In 2000, the family moved back to California. Reneé went back to college to complete an Associate Degree in Business Management and attained a Bachelor Degree with Mount Carmel Theological Seminary, a predominantly African-American Bible College, in 2004.
Reneé played her flute with the Souls 2 B 1 worship band at the Annadale First Southern Baptist Church in Sanger for two years. When Kim became an associate pastor and worship leader at the Dinuba First Southern Baptist she played her flute there as well.
Kim and Reneé once again found themselves ministering with the Foursquare Church when they found the Heart of the Valley church in Visalia. They worked with the church for around two years.
Now Kim and Reneé are freelancing as worship consultants to churches that are looking to enhance the worship portion of their services. Kim currently teaches, consults, coaches and develops worship for Christ believing churches from a theological point of view… Reneé is the heart and the fait
