Katy (Carnohan) Willis grew up in the San Luis Vineyard and dreamed about worshipping with the band as a child watching her dad play electric guitar on Sunday mornings with Jeff Searles. In high school, the worship pastors Danny and Jenny Grasseschi asked her to sing on the band, so she began singing with them at the age of 15. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Cal Poly, she became part of the church staff at San Luis Vineyard as the assistant to the current worship pastor, but when he moved away three months later, she became the new worship pastor! She led worship there for ten years. A few years ago, Katy and her husband Eric realized that God was leading them in a new direction and they found their new church home at Five Cities Vineyard. Katy loves to write songs and hopes to record them someday soon!
Katy’s husband Eric is the genius behind the sound board as well as one of the regular bass/electric guitar players. They live with their two toddlers in Atascadero.
Katy is passionate about seeing people healed, revival in the church, and real and honest worship happening in the body of Christ. There is nothing more filled with joy and deep satisfaction to her than to worship God with her church family. She loves her family and her church and is excited to see what God has in store for the future!
