Director of Youth & Children’s Ministries
Stephen is a Kellam alum and multi-generation local. He grew up in Pungo and has always considered Sandbridge his home, having been on the beach and in the water surfing here for 30 years. This small community and rural beach is where his heart is. Stephen feels that it is a blessing that God has given him to be at this church and spread the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ to the youth in our community and beyond. For the Joyner’s, youth ministry is a family affair. His wife Emily is the backbone to the ministry and their children are with them each step. During the day Stephen is kept busy as a Health/PE teacher for Virginia Beach. He enjoys spending free time with his wife and 3 children in Sandbridge visiting friends and keeping active.
