Welcome New Director of Children, Youth & Families!

The Personnel Committee and Christian Education Committee are delighted to introduce to our congregation the newest member of our staff, Joel Morien. Joel will serve in a part-time (20 hrs/week) position as our Director of Children, Youth & Family Ministries. He will be formally introduced on Sunday October 3 in the worship service, and you can stop by and greet him in the church office on an upcoming Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during office hours. Joel hails from Appleton, where he and his wife Brittany live in a household ruled by their almost 3-year old daughter Aubrey.

Joel has lots of experience with youth ministry and has crossed paths with some of us in this congregation in years past, when he directed camps and retreats at Pilgrim Center as well as leading youth programs at Synod School. He served as Youth Ministry Director for three years at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Appleton. Here at FPC Green Bay, he will be responsible, working alongside the CE Committee, for ministry and programming for our youngest children through high school youth and their families. Joel’s approach to ministry is relationship-based and team-oriented, so come meet him and join in his welcome to our congregation!
