Our Staff

Joel Bowers

HSM Executive Pastor

I placed my faith in Jesus Christ at a young age, however in my high school years my faith was more for appearances than an actual relationship with God. Upon entering college the Lord used CRU and my time on summer staff at Pine Cove Christian Camps to re-engage my heart with God and lead me to discover a calling to full-time ministry.

After graduating from college my wife and I began to pray about and talk about what the Lord could be leading us to for our next season of ministry. Through a mutual friend of Kevin Libick I was introduced to the ministry of Christ Chapel and was instantly hooked. I am so excited to serve and love on 5th and 6th graders and their families. I believe that as the gateway to youth ministry, the 5th and 6th grade arena is a pivotal place to begin having big faith conversations that allow students to engage with their parents and adult leaders through creative venues and Bible-centered teaching and conversation. I could not be more exited and honored to serve in this position.

I have been married to my wife, Hannah, since March of 2014. We met while on summer staff together at Pine Cove Christian Camps. In March of 2016 our family grew from 2 to 3 with the birth of our daughter, Olivia.
