Joey grew up in Plymouth, NC graduating from Plymouth High School, and later attended Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU). He graduated with a BS in Youth and Family Ministry with a Certificate in Family Life Education in May of 2016 and joined the HBCC staff the very next week. Being a relationship-driven, people-loving person, Joey’s passion is working with children, students, and families. He loves the outdoors — enjoying hobbies such as hunting and fishing. Other interests include watching and playing most any sport. “I love the Lord, the church, hanging out with students, hanging out with my friends and Whitley, my wife.” Joey and his wife, Whitely just recently welcomed their first child, Holland Rose! Joey sites his favorite verse as Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will set your path straight.”
