Joel Ebel

Student Ministry Director

My Job at ChristLife: building relationships with teenagers, their families and a team of ministry volunteers and guiding them to a closer walk with Jesus! We love to laugh and have fun at youth group, but we are very serious about becoming more Christlike and reaching the communities we live in with the Gospel. 

My Life and Faith Story: I grew up in a split home, with my mom and stepdad in Iowa and my dad and stepmom here in Colorado. While visiting my dad for the summer when I was 9, I sat down with the pastor at church and received Jesus as my Savior. My life was different from that day and in high school I felt God's call to commit my life to student ministry. I graduated from Maranatha Baptist University in 2010. I married my beautiful wife Hope in 2010 and we have two boys, Xavier and Jaxon. 

Bits and Pieces: I'm in love with baseball, and coach the JV team at Littleton High School. I also love golf, even though it doesn't really love me. 

What I like about ChristLife: The people! Our church family is warm and welcoming and we love being with them!
