Joe and his wife, Becca, and their son, Denton moved to Brooklyn September of 2016 to serve Resurrection Brooklyn Heights as a church planting resident. He is excited to see God build a church in this neighborhood that seeks the flourishing of both her members and neighbors.
He is originally from Columbus, Ohio and is an avid Ohio State football fan. After high school, he attended The University of Virginia where he played varsity lacrosse, studied history, and met Becca. The two got married shortly after graduating and stayed in Charlottesville to serve a UVA campus ministry to varsity athletes. Eventually they moved to Saint Louis, Missouri to attend Covenant Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters of Divinity in May of 2016.
Joe loves to play and coach lacrosse, read (particularly history and theology), see live music, run, watch college football, fly fish, hike, camp, snuggle with his wife and son, and explore his new city.
