Meet Our Pastor
Pastor Joel Christensen and his wife Angela came to Croswell, Michigan from the state of Montana early in 2022. Joel and Angela have three daughers: Rachel, who is married to Levi and has a daughter of her own, Jessica, and Faith. As Pastor Joel and Angela began to make plans to move to Michigan, all of the family eventually felt that God was leading them to come along, and so the entire family made the move across the country. Pastor Joel was saved at a young age after a night of Vacation Bible School and felt God’s call to the ministry as a young adult. Joel and Angela were married in 1995, and after all three girls were born, they attended Maranatha Baptist Bible College (now Maranatha Baptist University), in Watertown, Wisconsin, and Pastor Joel went on to receive his seminary training at Maranatha Baptist Seminary. Pastor Joel loves to connect over a good cup of coffee, and his passion for ministry is seen through his expositional preaching of God’s Word and his love for the people at Community Baptist and his interaction with the Croswell community.
