Tara was raised outside of Atlanta, Georgia, and arrived in Charleston in 1992 to attend the College of Charleston. She started singing with the Seacoast worship team while in college and has since held several roles, including Worship Leader at the Mount Pleasant campus, Director of Seacoast Worship and now Worship Pastor, overseeing the worship for all twelve Seacoast campuses.
Tara is married to her college sweetheart, Greg, and they have two boys, Ethan and Brody. The Banks family loves to cheer for their favorite soccer teams and are passionate advocates for the 16,000 children in the greater Charleston area who suffer from hunger. Once fully caffeinated, Tara enjoys writing and dreaming about her favorite beach in Hawaii.
