UPDATE: Joe Pace is currently the Pastor of Worship & Arts at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, where I serve as pastor-teacher.
Joe Pace is an award-winning gospel music artist. He has recorded more than ten albums, many with the Colorado Mass Choir. “Stir Up the Gift,” “Shake the Foundation,” “Enter In,” “I Will Bless the Lord At All Times,” and “And We Are Glad,” being just a few of the well-known and often-performed songs he has recorded.
Pace is also an ordained minister and has served as Pastor of Worship, actively participating in overseeing and leading worship and praise in the local church. Emphasizing “Urban Praise,” Pace’s heart is to write and record music for corporate worship on Sunday morning, not to become a celebrated crossover artist.
I am a loving critic of Gospel Music. I listen to it all. But as a pastor, so much of it grieves me, for so many reasons. But I was genuinely surprised and encouraged by the following conversation with Joe Pace about music, worship, and the local church. I found his perspective refreshing. I trust you will to.
