Pastor of Worship and Creative Arts
Joel is a hometown boy born and raised right here in Lynden, Washington. He graduated from Lynden High School and later Trinity Western University. In 2004, Joel married the woman of his dreams, Amy and they made a few replicas of themselves: Kaleb, Jessa, and Madelyn. They are 4 of the 5 loves of his life. The fifth love is of course the guitar. Joel has been playing the guitar in bands and at churches since he was a squeaky little 13 year old. Unfortunately his guitar playing was a bit squeaky at first, but some lessons fixed that. At NCCTK Joel oversees the music, video production, and printing and production departments. Joel loves laughing, giggling, snickering, being with his family, being with people, playing music, leading people in worship, and eating, and running (mostly because he likes eating). Most times you see Joel he will either be holding a guitar or a coffee. If it's a good day it's either a Telecaster or a Starbucks Pike Place Roast with cream. Joel also accepts gifts.
