our staff

Christ the Servant is blessed with dedicated staff, visionary leaders, and wonderful volunteers.  Meet some of them below.


JOE beal

Pastor Joe came to know Christ as a teen.   He loves to help others make that critical connection.   His ministry takes him out into the neighborhood, giving solace to the struggling and grieving, engaging with the children and letting them know they are perfectly made in the image of God -- with a dear friend in Jesus.   For breaks, Joe loves to get out in our beautiful Pacific Northwest, hiking the mountains,  or visiting the Pacific beaches with his wife, Cindy.
