Joe Budish

Junior High Lead Associate


Joe’s first experience with ministry leadership came during high school when he led a 3rd-5th grade Sunday School small group. Early in college he discovered he loved working with junior high students. Joe is a unique blend of silly and serious and is a self-described "cool nerd" who liked math class. When he is not hanging out with junior high students, he enjoys disc golf, reading, playing the guitar, and improv comedy. Email Joe

In 2013, she joined our staff to do full-time ministry and pour into the spiritual lives of young women.
