Who is Rooted Deep?

Rooted Deep was established in 2011 by Jeff and Leah Rybak in response to God’s calling.

Jeff’s hard rock roots began in upstate New York as a lead vocalist and guitarist in many local rock bands. At the age of 25, Jeff had an encounter with the Lord that moved him into the ministry of a praise & worship leader. His vocals and instrumentation have progressed to become a fusion of rock and pop that truly express his love for what God has done in his life.

Leah grew up in southeast Virginia in a Christian home and was heavily involved in her church from an early age. It was there she was filled with the Holy Spirit and began performing in church plays and musicals. In her early 20’s, Leah became a praise & worship leader and began lending her musical talent to many church choirs and special groups. Her voice has evolved into an eclectic styling that crosses traditional, ethnic, and generational boundaries.

In 2000, Jeff and Leah met through the praise & worship team at church. As their love grew, they came together in marriage in 2005. Together, Jeff and Leah are praise & worship leaders at New Life Providence Church in Virginia Beach, VA. They know they have been called to lead every generation to Christ through music and give thanks to God for the opportunity to be a witness of His love.

Jeff’s musical influences bring an edge to complement the sweet soulful quality of Leah’s voice. It’s that formula of music that has touched lives and encouraged people to turn to their true kingdom purpose.

Every knee shall bow, every tongue confesses, and every nation cries out to the power of His Name, the Name of Jesus.
