Our Music/Worship Pastor is Naomi King Walker. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree from Shorter College, Rome, GA, and her Master of Church Music and Doctor of Music Ministry degrees from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY.

Prior to coming to Frankfort, Naomi served as Minister of Music at First Baptist Church, Vienna, GA for 14 years and as Associate Minister of Music at Lyndon Baptist Church, Louisville, KY for 9 years.

Throughout her music ministry, Naomi has frequently assumed leadership roles in statewide festivals and conferences, and has been published by Morningstar, Choristers Guild, The Church Musician, Baptists Today and other publishers.

Since 1995, Naomi has served on Immanuel's pastoral staff team. Her passion is helping people of all ages develop and use their innate musical, dramatic and artistic talents in worship and ministry. In her leisure time, she enjoys a variety of interests, especially decorative painting and quilting.
