JOEL ISRAEL, ASSOCIATE PASTOR OF FAMILY MINISTRIES 

As Associate Pastor of Family Ministries, Joel oversees all programming for ages 0-18.  He also provides teaching and discipleship for our middle school and high school students on Sunday evenings.  His hope for all children and teenagers at Pennington Park is that they would come to know Jesus and make him known as they grow into faithful, contributing members of the local church.

Joel is married to his incredible wife, Abby, and they have both been blessed with a son, Aidan.  In his spare time, Joel enjoys designing and building furniture in his hobbyist wood shop or spending time with friends and family.  He’s also a dedicated fan of the Green Bay Packers and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
