ASSOCIATE, YOUTH AND FAMILY PASTOR
Pastor Joe grew up in Rochester, MN. When he was fifteen he chose to follow Jesus. "I remember thinking that I had tried everything else the world had to offer and it wasn’t enough. I was missing Christ in my life," he says.
Joe's favorite verse is Galatians 5:1 which says that it is for our freedom that Jesus has set us free. "It is His freedom that I wanted to know, and it is His freedom that I want to share with others."
Since graduating with a Bachelors of Science degree in Youth and Family Ministry from Central Christian College of the Bible in 2006, Joe has served in three churches: First Christian Church in Owasso, OK, First Christian Church in Clearwater, FL, and currently here with Kimball Church of Christ. His experiences in ministry involve working within the youth and family ministries.
Apart from his role at KCC, Joe enjoys hanging out with his family and making memories. Joe met his wife, Liberty, while in school at Central and they were married in 2002. They have four children--Joey, Atalie, Isaac, and Sophia. As a family the Drugas enjoy fishing, swimming, and riding roller coasters together...and taking long strolls on the beach.
"I am most passionate about seeing people who are excited about life and Jesus!"
OUR LEADERSHIP is based on biblical guidelines for an Elder board. These people guide ministry decisions and ensure that a healthy, God-honoring implementation of leadership and pastoral care is carried out. Kimball Church of Christ has been blessed by many decades of godly leadership. We look to the future with confidence in God's appointed leadership and appreciation of the servant hearts these Christ followers exhibit.
