Lead Pastor: Joel Hastings
 
Family: My wife Bethany and I have been married since 2012. We have two sons, Josh and Micah. 
 
Passion:  I am passionate about teaching God’s Word. I love everything from researching, to writing, to presenting the truths of God’s Word. 

​Hobbies: I love hanging out with Bethany above everything. Besides that, I enjoy reading non-fiction. If it’s fiction, I’d rather watch the movie. I enjoy watching my favorite sports teams. I still hang on to my Oklahoma teams and Dallas Cowboys. I am slowly learning to root for the local teams! 
 
Life Verse: Acts 20:24 “But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Family:  Beth and I have been married since 1964. We have two daughters, nine grandchildren, and one great-grandson. 
 
Passion:  I am passionate about the Word of God: studying it, sharing it, and teaching its truths. 
 
Hobbies: I enjoy reading, especially historical novels and history non-fiction.  Also, I like classical music, folk music, and Christian music, especially the old hymns and praise choruses. I like watching college sports; UK basketball is a lifelong favorite. 
 
Life verse: Phil 3: 13-14… “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do: forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God In Christ Jesus.”
