Andy focuses on helping the church in two primary ways. First, by helping the church articulate and pursue its specific vision. To help move that vision forward, Andy works with our ministry teams. He also empowers and equips church leaders. Second, by inspiring and equipping people to live out their faith in their daily context. His passion is lay people who are “full of faith and amazed by grace.”
Andy has served twice with PBC. The first was from 1991-2011, and the second started in January 2020. Andy, along with his family, served God as missionaries in Portugal from 2011 to 2019.
Andy is married to Mara and has three kids – Alyssa, Rebecca, and Jonathan. Andy enjoys biking, hiking, history and his family!
Joel's primary focus of ministry at PBC is helping people get connected to the church, whether it is for the first time as a guest, joining a small group, or helping them use their gifts through serving the church. Joel also has a desire to serve the church by caring for people during life's hard times and helping them see how the gospel influences every aspect of life.
Joel has been with PBC since January 2020. Joel served in the Christian camping ministry from 2002-2013, and then worked for LifeWay Christian Stores from 2013-2019.
