Christian Recording Artist, Janicka Newbill is best described as Called, Anointed, and for many, A Voice in the Wilderness. She is often recognized for her ability to lead others in worship and above all else ministers the Word of God through song. Because she desires for people to encounter the presence of God, she avails herself to the Church body as a psalmist, worship leader and teacher. Janicka’s music and
powerful vocals have opened the doors for her to reach hearts and souls on national and international platforms.
To her credit as a vocalist and songwriter, she is an award winning independent artist, which includes the JPF Awards for BEST Urban Gospel Album and BEST Urban Gospel Song for her debut project, Endure. Janicka has had the pleasure of opening for Gospel powerhouses such as CeCe Winans, Canton Jones, Norman Hutchins and John Murray. She has shared the stage with Gospel favorites such as Dr. Bobby Jones, Vickie Winans, Martha Munizzi, Byron Cage, Deitrick Haddon and Tye Tribbett.
Janicka has also performed in supporting choirs for Contemporary Christian artists such as Integrity’s Don Moen, Lenny LeBlanc, Paul Baloche, LeAnn Albrecht, David Watts and Pop/R&B vocalist Mariah Carey.
The elevation of her music ministry has laid a foundation towards her growth in the leadership sector of the Church. Janicka holds a Master of Arts degree in Worship Studies: Leadership from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Graduate School and a Doctor of Worship Studies degree from Liberty University.
As Dr. Newbill, she is the founder of Teshua Ministries and utilizes her educational background to serve ministries and churches as a speaker, church consultant, teacher and presenter for workshops and conferences. With a heart of service for all who will receive, she engages audiences not based on denominations but communities of people who seek to grow in their understanding of what God desires from His people as personal and congregational worshipers.
She embraces opportunities to partner with churches and ministries to teach people about authentic worship, to further the gospel and win souls for the kingdom of God. Standing on the words of Psalms 57:7, “My Heart is Fixed, O God, My Heart is Fixed: I will Sing and Give Praise”, impossibilities become possible and limits become endlessness for her. Janicka allows God to use and expose her in many ways all for the purpose of God to be glorified and His people to worship Him in spirit and in truth. She personifies faith with endurance and a steadfast devotion to serve.
She is on a mission to help others onward and upward towards victory. Her ministry reaches across generations and
through her elite education and top-tier musical experiences, Janicka is destined to fulfill her mission.
