Formed in 1993, FFH released six independent projects before being signed by Essential Records. Since then, they have released seven studio albums, as well as a "greatest-hits" album.
The group formed as Four for Harmony, an a cappella group. Over time they developed a vocal acoustic pop style, similar to that of Avalon, and changed their name to Far from Home. That name was being used by a secular duo and they became known as FFH.
FFH sang on Shine Your Light with Nicole Nordeman and "Hide Me in Your Heart" on City On a Hill: Sing Alleluia (2002), and on "Table of the Lord" with Paul Coleman Trio on City On a Hill: The Gathering (2003), and "Where Are You" and "Merciful Rain" on City On a Hill: Songs of Worship and Praise (2000).
Following the release of their 2007 album, Worship in the Waiting, they took a break from touring.
Jeromy Deibler was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2007 after he and Jennifer got back from Africa. Deibler is able to keep his MS under control with chemotherapy. The band returned in 2009 as a duo when members Jennifer and Jeromy Deibler released their independent album Wide Open Spaces. It was re-released in 2010 on P-ID Blue. It was followed up in 2011 by One Silent Night: An FFH Christmas. Then in 2012, FFH released their second worship album, and 11th studio album since their major label debut, The Way We Worship.
Jeromy is a full-time worship leader at Journey Christian Church in Irvine, California.
