IBC WORSHIP

Use your gifts to help lead others in worship of Christ

In Immanuel’s worship ministry, we believe that worship is our wholistic response to all that God is, says, and does. We want to worship authentically, make music excellently, inspire intentionally, and testify boldly, all to the glory of the Lord!

About Justin

My Name is Justin McWhorter and this summer I will have been married to my wife, Jaime for 20 years! We have three super talented kids, Kameron (19), Logan (16) and Kyleigh (14). I have been in full-time ministry since 2004. I have  heart for worship and love to be involved in all the details that come together to usher our church family into the presence of the Almighty. I like to golf and love to fish. When I’m not at work or with my family, you’ll find me sipping a Dr. Pepper on a vessel out in the Pacific.
