Joey Baham

Worship Pastor & Elder

Office: 871-2755

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and accepted the Lord at the age of 18.  When I was 19, I moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to further my music career in the secular music industry.  I had been attending and serving at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale but it wasn’t until 2003 when God’s plan for my life became very clear to me.  I gave up the secular music industry and gave my life over to the call of ministry.  I was privileged to be a part of the Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale staff as an assistant worship leader / choir director as well as the chorus teacher for Calvary Christian Academy middle and high school.  In 2011, God called our family to move to Virginia to start ministry.  On June 18, 2012, I moved my family to Virginia on a faith journey and became the worship leader at Calvary Chapel Front Royal.  Once again, God has called our family to move, but this time to the beautiful city of Summerville, South Carolina, where I now have the privilege of being the Worship Pastor here at Crossroads Community Church!
Life Verse:  Psalm 146:1-2  “Praise the Lord!  While I live, I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.”
