Principal Joe grew up in both Oregon and Idaho. He was one of nine children in a family that helped plant a church that his father pastored. He attended homeschool, a private Christian school, and public schools before attending college. He came to the Palouse to study at the University of Idaho where he majored in marketing while also studying secondary education, graduating with a Bachelors in Science and Business Marketing. After graduation, he later earned a Master of Practical Ministry from the College Ministry Training and became an ordained minister. For twenty years, he served as the college pastor at Living Faith Fellowship before becoming the PCS Principal in 2021. Principal Joe is passionate about seeing students prepared for all aspects of life: academically, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. He also operates a small service business in our region that helps fund his family and others in ministry. He and his wife, Suzanne, have four children: three PCS students and one PCS alumnus. For fun, he enjoys time spent with his family, getting outdoors to enjoy God's creation, and serving in his church and our community.
