Jessica Talbott – Worship Leader

Our worship leader, Jessica Talbott, came to the New Life Ministry team in June 2018, from New Beginnings Community Church in Wampsville, NY. There she served on the worship team beginning in 2014, after moving to the CNY area from Florida. 
In Florida, Jessica was a music educator for over a decade, teaching orchestra in the public schools, but that wasn’t God full plan for her life. Growing up in the church, she played cello in the church orchestra and throughout college. As a young professional in Orlando, she was a hired “church musician”, but God had a bigger plan. 
It took her family moving to CNY to finally understand and pursue that plan. Jessica is a homeschooling mom to her five-year-old song Avery and wife to her husband Alex. She continues to teach privately and perform regularly. But leading worship weekly is her passion because it is God’s calling.
