Meet The Team

Joe

Pastor

For me, there is nothing more important than to know the creator and saviour of the world and to go through life in relationship with Him. Growing up, I had been taught about Jesus from an early age, but he wasn’t real to me personally. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens, that I came to fully understand who God was, and what he had done for me through the saving work of Jesus on the cross. I now live my life dedicated to teaching the Word of God, and the difference Jesus makes to our lives. I love the Bible, and I love Jesus.

Before going into full time ministry as the pastor at Jubilee Baptist Church, I worked for the American Security Forces and Ministry of Defence for over 13 years. I'm married to Jules, and we have three children together. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends and I love getting out on my road bike.

Andrew’s favourite thing about Occold - "I particularly like the strong sense of friendly community spirit in the village. For a relatively small, peaceful place, Occold punches above its weight with a range of activities for different age groups.
