Joel and his wife Meghan moved to Columbia Heights in 2015 to start a new church in the area. They were attracted to Columbia Heights because of the diversity and vibrancy of our neighborhood. Since moving here, both Joel and Meghan have become involved in the life of our neighborhood in different capacities, volunteering at many events and serving with District Bridges in many capacities. Joel leads Encounter Church, and dreams of seeing a community of faith that mobilizes its people and the neighborhood at large to serve and love one another.
