Welcome to our new Student Youth Worker - Joel

Hello everyone!

After living all my life in Bangor until I was 20 years old, I moved to Latvia in Eastern Europe to be involved in missions and youth work. After a couple of years of living in Latvia, I'm now 22 years old and back home in good old Northern Ireland for the next adventure that God has in store for me. I'm studying Youth and Community Work with Practical Theology and have the privilege of practicing my Youth Ministry here in Helen's Bay Presbyterian.

A little bit about myself...Well I like to think that I'm a pretty normal guy; I really like sports especially football, and much to the dismay of my new boss, I am a proud Tottenham Hotspur fan! I'm quite an outgoing and sociable person so hanging out with my mates is important for me and I enjoy meeting new people too. The most important thing that I can share about myself is that I love Jesus. I hope that everyone who I meet this year will be able to experience the passion I have for God and for helping young people to learn more about Him.

I am excited for all God has iin store this year, not only for myself, but also for the young people in Helen's Bay. Although this is just a brief bit about myself, I look forward to meeting and getting to know you all much better. Thank you to everyone who made this opportunity possible. Blessings, Joel.
