Joe is a native of Massachusetts and has lived in New Bern for almost 3 years now.

Way back in 1995 (the way his son describes it) he met the girl of his dreams and realizing his good fortune never let her get away.  He and his wife Jenna have two incredible children Elijah and Libby.  When Joe’s parents decided to retire to Eastern North Carolina they suggested Joe and his family move as well. Having tired of 6 month long winters and continually re-shoveling their driveway every time the plow would go by, Joe and Jenna took the plunge and have never looked back. Joe is a husband, father, worship leader, kids church director, and child of the One True God.  He loves making people smile and spreading the joy of the Lord. He is a rabid fan of all New England sports and loves passing on that tradition to his kids. Joe is a “Family Man” who loves spending time with his wife and kids playing games, learning about God, and loving each other. Joe has always felt called to ministry and has spent his life heavily involved in a local church. He is excited about the ministry of The Beacon and how God is going to grow him and the station.

Joe believes that ministry is a family and community affair and that we need to come together as the body of Christ to reach people for His kingdom. Joe often says, “THIS IS MISSIONS wherever we are, that is our mission field!”

You can join Afternoon Joe Monday-Friday from 2:00pm-6:00pm!
