Joe and Melissa have given their lives to impacting people with the message of Christ and equipping them for ministry in a variety of settings. After serving in ministry for over 20 years, God led them to start Third Coast Church in April of 2016. With a passion for the City of Corpus and the entire Gulf Coast, they are deeply committed to engaging coastal communities with the life-changing message of Jesus. Joe is known for loving his family, saltwater fishing, books, coffee, and for his authentically relational leadership style that points people to a big God and a loving Savior. Melissa is a praying, grace-oriented lover of her family, great desserts, and loves seeing women, both young and older, transformed by the power and presence of God. Joe and Melissa enjoy the Gulf Coast with their two beautiful children Molly and Jonah.
