Joel grew up in Port Alsworth, AK and was saved at a young age. As a teenager, Joel was active in camp work, serving in multiple positions. He was also given several opportunities to go on mission trips to the villages in Alaska and one mission trip to Africa. These experiences enforced and confirmed for Joel a calling to full time ministry.
In 2012, Joel received a B.A. in Biblical Exposition from Moody Bible Institute. He began a two-year internship at Second Baptist Church, West Frankfort, IL in the Spring of 2014. From there, Joel and his family moved to Pinedale, WY to assist in the work of planting a church. He was ordained to ministry in July, 2018 at Second Baptist Church, West Frankfort, IL.
Joel and his family moved to Kansas in 2017 to work with Trinity Baptist Church in planting a new church. Though God did not allow the church plant to develop, God gave Joel the opportunity to work as the Youth Pastor at Trinity Baptist Church. He served on staff there from the beginning of 2020 until September of 2021 when he accepted the position of Youth Pastor at Faith Bible Fellowship.
God has given Joel a passion and love for the Gospel, for teaching and preaching the Word of God, and for the local church.
Joel enjoys the outdoors, playing with his kids, and woodworking. He is married to Samantha, and they have three children.
