Paul Taggart

I have been the worship pastor at CBC since December of 2005. Prior to coming to CBC I served as the associate pastor of worship and arts at FBC McKinney, TX. After graduating from college, my journey led me on a very unplanned path which culminated with me working as a stockbroker for 9 years. While this was a very fast-paced and sometimes exciting job, it never filled the calling in my life to serve God and to honor him in the way in which He “wired” me.

Taking a huge leap of faith, my wife Wendy and I felt we should make a change and pursue full time vocational ministry. Since then, we have never looked back. After graduating from high school in west Texas, I earned a bachelor of arts degree in music education and minor in church ministry from Hardin Simmons University. I also have a master of arts degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

 

More About Paul:

What Biblical character do you identify with most and why?

I identify most with the donkey that Jesus rode into Jerusalem on. Why? Well, I’m stubborn by nature (Scottish…what can I say?). Half the time I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going. I just try to follow where the Lord is taking me. Also, I want to serve in the best way I know how in lifting HIM up.

What was the last time you feared for your life?

2004. Kidney cancer. Wow! That was an awesome ride. Learned a lot about faith during that time. Was definitely scary, but it was also one of the most awesome things I had ever experienced at the same time. God was ALWAYS there and ALWAYS being glorified in so many ways.

What is the most unusual non-ministry job you’ve had?

I worked in a funeral home. I was a pre-med student at the time and thought it would be good experience. It was all fine and good with all the various things I had to do; pickups, drive the hearse, visitations, funerals, …other stuff…, but the one thing that eventually became the demise of my funeral career was having to sleep there every third weekend. The bedroom was only separated from the prep room by a sliding pocket door. Not cool.
