Olivia Dyer, native to Chesapeake, VA, has made it her life's mission to see the world experience the kind, close and personal nature of God. Writing music and leading people in worship since 2004, Olivia longs to see people encounter God in the deeper places of His presence. It's her desire that the songs she writes cause the dreams and passions inside of those listening to be rekindled, rediscovered, or even discovered for the first time.
