Joey started working at NSC in 2016 as the Admin Assistant. When a fairly important event called the Covid Pandemic happened, Joey helped NSC run its social media, livestream and video content so the church can stay connected. He also ministers to the hobbits of NSC (aka Elementary and Middle School kids) and is the director of the church Day Camp.

Joey married his bestfriend Morgan back in 2019. They have a lovable, adorable, energetic boy; Lewis. Morgan has been the source of many ideas for Day Camp of which he is very grateful for!

Joey loves basketball, but it doesn't always love him back because his team seems to keep losing important games. Joey is also a giant nerd that loves fantasy, history, board games and video games... oh he also thinks corgis are the cutest dogs in the world.
