Joel Mancini

Middle School Minister

How does one make it to be a Middle School Minister? The Lord must call you! I joined the family of Northwest Bible Church in April 2018. My heart beats to bring joy and fun without sacrificing truth and conviction to the work of discipling middle school students. I am recently married to my lovely wife Ashley, and we look forward to a BIG family one day, Lord willing! 

I was a pastor’s kid from birth and no doubt achieved the legendary “awkward middle child” award. I trusted Jesus with my life at a young age, but that was soon overshadowed by my parents divorce. In high school, God was faithful to bring a church volunteer into my life to challenge my young faith. That is all it took to set a fire in my soul for Jesus and his church. And still to this day, nothing brings me greater joy than watching students grow in their walk with the Lord. 

On a free Saturday, you might find me playing disc golf, enjoying a cup of coffee, catching up with an old friend or hiking with my wonderful wife! We love to have people over for dinner and board games! When in need of encouragement I often turn to Ezra 7:10 to focus and lift my spirit. “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.”
