 Meet Our Pastor

 

                                               

Joel grew up in the cool hills of Ness Castle, St. Thomas.  His education was obtained at the Woburn Lawn All-Age School, the Seaforth High Institute and Excelsior Community College, respectively. 

 

Being reared by his grandparents meant that going to church was mandatory, and so Joel grew up attending the Sanctified Church of God in Ness Castle.  At age 16 he made a commitment to follow Christ and was baptized.  Joel found himself being drawn to the musical life of the church and this contributed to him learning to play the guitar at an early age.  He was also very zealous about the work of God.  This was recognized by the church and Joel was licensed as a minister in his denomination a few years later.  His zeal for God kept growing and this led him to further his theological understanding by applying to the United Theological College of the West Indies (UTCWI) and the University of the West Indies Mona Campus where he gained a Diploma in Ministerial Studies and a B.A in Theology. He further obtained a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education and Training.  The four years at UTCWI helped to affirm the call to full-time pastoral ministry that Joel was already sensing.

 

The Sanctified Church of God did not allow Joel to exercise the call to the ministry on a full-time basis, as ministers in that context were expected to work otherwise. 

 

Being at UTCWI as an independent student, gave Joel the opportunity to intermingle with all the denominations present on campus.  After conversations with the warden of the United Church community, Rev. Henley Bernard, Joel began contemplating becoming a part of the United Church.  After graduating from UTCWI in 2004, Joel began working in the St. Paul’s and Norwood congregations as a ministry assistant/Youth Pastor.  After completing a year, Joel applied to the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands for an opportunity to exercise the call to full time ministry he felt on his life of which his application was accepted.

 

As a dedicated servant of God he was ordained to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in November of 2006.   He was called to lead two Churches in Kingston Jamaica as their senior Pastor in 2007 which he did for seven years.

 

He is married to his charming wife Sandra for 18 years. The union has produced three sons, Joel (jr), Roshaun and Jaden.

 

He enjoys playing the guitar, singing and playing cricket and soccer.

His philosophy is “Never say no to a challenge; If God takes you to it, he will guide you through it. “
