Our ministry is about more than music! Yes, we love making music. In fact, we love it so much that we even created a motto: "Pitch, Rhythm, Color, Artistry in Ministry!" However, we love supporting each other more: being there for each other, encouraging each other when times get tough and celebrating each other's accomplishments. Our ministry is not just a community of musicians, but a community for musicians.
Music has always been a vital part of worship at St. Paul's and includes everything from traditional hymns and centuries of classical works to Spirituals, contemporary selections, and original compositions. Cantors lead the congregation at all our services and soloists (both singers and instrumentalists) are featured throughout the year.
Dr. Felix Eisenhauer oversees the Music Ministry as a whole, Tara Eisenhauer directs our choir and team of dynamic musicians, and Sara Edwards is our organist. Our Music Minister, Felix, is happy to answer any music related questions.

St. Paul's Choir is a group of dedicated volunteer singers who come together to share our love of music. Yes, we all love to sing (we even have a motto! "Pitch, Rhythm, Color, Artistry in Ministry!), but, more importantly, we come together to create a welcoming space, bringing together members of St. Paul's, music students at Ventura College, and neighbors who call Ventura County…Read More »
