Joe Nissen- Pastor for Worship

Pastor Joe Nissen took over as Minister for Worship and Music in early 2014. Having been at Arbor Drive for many years and having served on the worship team, Pastor Joe has been an influential part of Arbor Drive. He was affirmed by the body to serve as Pastor for Worship in 2015. His passion for God-centered and Christ exalting lyrics that proclaim God's truth has been a blessing and under his leadership, Arbor Drive has experienced vibrant, spirit-filled worship as we corporately proclaim the excellencies of Christ.
