Dr. Joe Martin
We enthusiastically called our pastor, Dr. Joe Martin, to lead our congregation in 2019. Pastor Martin has served in government service for over 20 years. He is a dual-service veteran of the Marine Corps and the Army, with his most recently assignment as a Chaplain in the US Army Reserves. He has over a decade of experience in church and Christian ministries. He completed his Doctor of Ministry degree at Luther Rice College & Seminary in 2018. He also holds the degrees of Master of Divinity (Luther Rice College & Seminary, 2016), Master of Religious Education (West Coast Baptist College, 2014), and a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry (Florida Baptist College, 2008). He is a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor and certified suicide counselor and caregiver through the American Association of Christian Counselors and the International Board of Christian Care. We are blessed to have a compassionate teacher and shepherd as the pastor of our church!
