  • JOSEPH CUMBERLAND - youth minister

    At the age of 8 I gave my life to Christ and I knew that I was called to share the gospel of Jesus with everyone the Lord gave me the privilege to meeting. God has been teaching, leading and preparing me for His plans since I made Him Lord and Savior. God has called me to lead His people through serving and teaching His Word. My heart is to see both students and adults to come to full knowledge of Christ and His love for them. I want to be part of a great move of God and I truly believe that happens through discipleship and love for God's people. I am a worshiper, a disciple-maker, and a man of prayer.

    I married an amazing woman in my wife Megan and we have 2 beautiful girls Addie and Anna and a beautiful new baby boy named Abram. I have been in ministry for 10 years and have served in churches all over Mississippi and Louisiana. Email me at
