Joe Boone

Associate Pastor (Pastoral Care and Senior Adult Ministry)

Cast all your cares upon him; He cares for you. I Peter 5:7

Joe is about the ministry of caring. That ministry has taken him all over the United States caring for people after hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes. He has traveled to Russia, to Poland, and to Kenya. It has taken him alongside soldiers in the United States Army. He has had the opportunity to serve in the lives of people from birth to one hundred five years of age. The passion for pastoral care has taken Joe many places, but the most important place Joe has traveled is into the presence of Christ Jesus; a place where he seeks to live and a place which constantly serves as a billboard stating that....we are never out of His presence...Christ cares for you.
