Joel Tucker, Student Pastor

About Joel:

Where were you born? Lake City, FL

Spouse and kids: My wonderful wife is Leah and we have 2 kids Caroline and Miles

Favorite food and why you like them? Banana - its quick, can be eaten on the go, is healthy, and leaves you with something to throw at people.

Why ministry? First, Jesus transformed my life with His salvation. Secondly, He has placed a desire in me to lead teenagers to investigate God's truth, be transformed by Jesus' salvation, and to serve others for God's glory.

Most mysterious thing about God? His Election

Favorite attribute of God? Grace - God giving me what I do not deserve.

Where did you attend school? Baptist College of Florida and Southeastern Baptist Seminary

Passions: I love exploring the outdoors with my family, running and history.

Favorite verse: Mark 10:45, "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many."

Which biblical character (apart from Christ) has impacted your life most? The disciple Peter: He acted before he thought which led to trouble. In spite of his actions and inactions, Jesus loved him with an amazing grace and called him to lead the church.

What are you currently learning in your journey with God? Faith in God is trusting Him in all things not just big things.
