The Cardington Church of the Nazarene is pleased to announce the appearance of Joani Tabor, who will present a worship concert on January 11 at 7 p m.
The next day, January 12, she will make a second appearance at a worship and message service beginning at 10:45 am.
Described as a communicator, Tabor’s motto is “Nothing’s Gonna Steal my Joy.”
This desire to have her life reflect God’s joy is always at the forefront of her music.
The impact is unmistakable when Tabor, with her bubbling personality, conveys her enthusiastic faith in concert. She has witnessed over 50,000 decisions for Christ in 19 years.
A communicator, Tabor’s stage presence and unassuming manner combines with sincerity to make an excellent presentation. Her combination of music with many styles of songs appeals to listeners of any age. Her voice ranges four octaves and is best described as “intense vocal artistry.” She also plays the piano, flute and organ and is in demand as a women’s speaker.
Born in Bluefield, W. V her childhood was interrupted at the age of 11 when her father died. She credits her father, who was a choir director, for her love of music.
A year later, when she became a Christian, she said, “Christ became my father.”
Her husband, Dr. Glenn A Tabor, Jr., is a pastor and prayerfully supports her ministry.
Her first professional song release “Nothings Gonna Steal My Joy,” was charted nationally and she has 11 songs to chart on the national Christian music charts.
She has also gained national recognition with an impressive “Female Vocalist of the Year,” “Founders Award,” and a “Gold Cross Award.” She has appeared at the White House, the Crystal Cathedral and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
The public is invited to attend these services at the Cardington Church of the Nazarene, 328 Water Street. Darryle Moody is the pastor.
