Joel and his wonderful wife Rachel are the proud parents of Kellin and Mina. Their family loves playing sports with the neighborhood families, going for walks and bike rides, and cooking together in the kitchen. Joel and his family are members of Bethel OPC in Oostburg, helping lead in church ministries and Bible studies. SCS is a place that he has felt called to serve at from day 1. He served as a classroom teacher for his first 17 years at SCS. He now serves as the instructional and TfT coach. Joel’s deep hope for himself and his teachers is that together they will LISTEN to each other, EXPLORE ideas, TAKE RISKS, and REFLECT on the work God has put before them.
