Joel Siken

 Youth Pastor

Joel grew up in a Christian home, a “PK” as they say. Much of his dad’s ministry was as a youth pastor. While Joel has been extremely blessed, his life has not been without hardship and struggle. When he was 13, his mother contracted an extremely rare virus that took her life very, very quickly. But rather than run from God, Joel ran to Him, drawing closer to Christ.

Joel is a sophomore at Grand Canyon University, studying engineering. He hopes to use his skills not only to work in engineering, but also to go abroad, perhaps to China, with the intention to further His service to Christ in ministry. Joel has been active in youth groups, led kids at sports camp and served in the media arts at his high school.
