Worship Leader, Joy Hocker
Joy, Cameron, and their daughter Lily Hocker joined Monterey in 2019. She is a third-generation worship leader, and has been immersed in worship ministries her whole life. Joy is proficient in several instruments and she's never done learning (right now, she's working on the flute). Her favorite passage of Scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which tells us to "rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances."
