His song "Bring Them Home" was sung at Mother Teresa's funeral service in Calcutta, India.

Kilpatrick speaks at churches and conferences around the world.
His first book, "Secrets of the Silence," was released in 2009 and his most recent book, "The Art of Being You," was published by Zondervan Books in 2010.
For nearly 15 years, Kilpatrick wrote a popular column for "Christian Musician" magazine. His writings also have appeared in www.worshiptogether.com , Youth Specialties, CCM, Relevant magazine and www.crosswalk.com .
Kilpatrick is an ordained minister and the third inductee into the Assemblies of God Hall of Honor. He is married to Cindy, his high school sweetheart. They have five children and live in Fair Oaks, Calif.
Kilpatrick is quoted as saying, "My desire is to serve the Church in any way that God allows. This was not a career choice for me, it was, and is, a calling. I am a servant. With God's grace, That's what I'll always be."
He also has said, "Every week in churches across America people tell me that this simple but life-changing message – God is an Artist, not a Mathematician, and you are his masterpiece, not his frustrating equation – frees them in a way nothing else has. Many have told me what one woman said: 'I have hobbled along for years wanting God to fix me when He was really wanting to form me.' "
