Brothers, Ben and Bill Kristijanto, formed Iowa-based band, Bread of Stone, in 2004. Their father believed the Lord was calling them to start a music ministry, so the brothers started taking music lessons and began performing in local churches. As time progressed, Bread of Stone began playing at festivals and youth conferences, and various other venues the Lord provided, giving them the opportunity to share the Gospel message. Ben and Bill have since been joined by bass player, Tim Barnes (South Dakota) and drummer, Jason Ferris (Ohio) to form a four-piece band.
