Joey has been with In His Name since day one at Tower Heights apartments. Though he was raised in church, his adult life had very little to do with God and church. When James Baker and Jon Huebner knocked on his door three years ago to invite him to the new service that In His Name was starting right in the apartment community, Joey felt the call of the Lord to get himself back into church. Joey recommitted his life to the Lord one Sunday and rarely misses a service or activity. Despite health problems, he keeps himself involved in the lives of other people in the community. Any new residents will not be wait long before Joey comes to their home to invite them to church. He has even filled in a couple of times when pastor Jon could not be there. When asked about the church, Joey loudly proclaims, “This is the best thing that has happened to our community!”
UPDATE: Since the printing of this article in our newsletter, Joey went to be with His Lord in November 2017 following a long period of illness. He is missed by all.
