Nathaniel and D’Jeniele Hooten have been leading worship in many different capacities since both of their youths. Growing up in Atalanta, Texas, Nathaniel Hooten began his musical career at the ripe age of 5 years old. Gaining a love for the craft, he was commissioned by Shreveport Community Church, formerly known as First Assembly of God Shreveport, where he would spend a majority of his youth perfecting his craft. D’Jeniele Jones Hooten was raised in the Pacific Northwest before making her way to Shreveport, Louisiana with her parents. Pastors Dewitt and Kim Jones, now Senior Pastors of Kings Cathedral in Irving, Texas, went on staff also serving under the matchless leadership of Pastors Denny and DeAnza Duron. After marrying, Nathaniel and D’Jeniele would continue to work and travel with the Band ForeverJones. They would also find themselves right in the middle of anything having to do with Music and Production at Shreveport Community Church. After serving for a season, they soon realized their time there would sadly come to a swift end as the Lord called them away to be Planted at Life Church under the direction and incredible leadership of Pastors Gary and Sheila Cavalier. They would spend the next year leading Worship and growing exponentially in God. After a year there, they unexpectedly were called to another assignment to be the Lead Worship Pastors at yours truly Gateway Church, where they plan to serve like God is watching and push the limits in every area that God has them in. Keeping with the Church’s mission statement, they want to take what they have been entrusted with from where it is to where God wants it to be!
