The Joy Ride

Paul Baloche

A native of Maple Shade, New Jersey, Paul Baloche is currently the worship pastor at Community Christian Fellowship in Lindale, Texas.  

Paul doesn’t shy away from Christ when writing. He says about the music industry, “[I write] a lot of songs about the Cross... People are almost apologetic about it, and yet I feel challenged not to shrink from it. Our tendency is to make our language inclusive and seeker friendly. And I get that, but we also need songs that point to the truth of the new covenant.”

Many of his songs are among the most performed songs in American churches according to the CCLI (a company that handles music licensing). Among them are Open the Eyes of My Heart (ranked number 2) and Above All (ranked number 22).
