As a middle-schooler growing up in Baltimore, Pastor Joe dreamed of becoming a pastor because he loved being with the church family so much. He loves worshiping, fellowshipping, and sharing life with brothers and sisters in Christ. While in medical school in Grenada, one of the things he missed most was preaching the Word every Lord’s Day! He realized then how much he loves preaching the Word. He is committed to preaching a Christ-centered gospel. Pastor Joe also loves the city of San Diego. He roots for all things San Diego. He prays for its shalom. He is grateful to God for the privilege of preaching the gospel to the people he loves in this beautiful city.
Pastor Joe graduated from Johns Hopkins University (B.A., 1994) and Westminster Theological Seminary (M.Div., 1998); was ordained in the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America, 2001); and received his Ph.D. from Dallas Baptist University (2015).
Pastor Amos is a California native. He met his lovely wife Kathy on the 4th of July. The fireworks went off and now they are happily married. Together they raise one silly boy named Myles and a sweet little girl named Amelia. When pastor Amos is not studying, he is playing basketball, reading, or enjoying some delicious coffee. He is a graduate of Westminster Seminary California and is an ordained minister of the KAPC. Some of his favorite things to do in San Diego are exploring different hiking trails, finding hidden beach spots, taking Myles to the botanical gardens/zoo/aquarium/museums, scoping out different coffee shops, and appreciating the beautiful weather.
