worship pastor

Joey Taucher

John 4:23-24 (NLT) says, “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth”. Pastor Joey longs to see and lead congregations and worship teams alike into giving God all the glory and honor that is due to Him, worshiping Him as the Bible tells us too. In addition to his worship pastor duties, Pastor Joey is Co-Founder of Extravagant Worship Music Ministries, through which he travels and leads with other worship leaders around the country and has been a part of two original worship albums, which are available on all digital platforms. Originally from the Columbus, OH area, Pastor Joey is a licensed Minister of Music & Song through House of David Ministries in Orlando, FL and joined Camarillo Church of the Nazarene as Executive Worship Pastor in June 2019.
