Staff & Lay Leaders

Joel newton

Associate Pastor

Ephesians 2:19-20 says, "So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God...Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone." I was welcomed into God's family in Kansas City, grew up and was confirmed in Rockford, Illinois, and got to study in Christian community at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska and Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis. The Lord has blessed me with my wife Sarah and our children George, Norah, and Katy. I love welcoming others into the family and exploring together what it means to live and work in the Resurrection hope!
