Our Staff

Joel & Emily Gatlin

Pastor & Pastor's Wife

We love our Pastor! Each week he delivers relevant, Biblical sermons that compel us to love and follow Jesus with everything we have.

Pastor Joel has felt the Lord leading him to pastor from childhood, and began ministering at the young age of 15. His passion for Jesus and his heart for people to know the love of God is evident in everything he does.

His beautiful wife, Emily Gatlin, grew up in a Pastor's home, and has always had a heart for ministry. She teaches Sunday School, facilitates the Ladies' Ministry, and is an Administrator for Hope Church.

Clay Gatlin
