Tray and Melody are joined by Pastor Joel Fitzpatrick on episode 132 to discuss a variety of topics such as weakness, being a sinner saved by grace, family and the products he uses to get his beard to look so great.
Bringing a sense of humor to everything he talks about, Joel is able to offer a positive outlook on sometimes difficult subject matter. Joel discusses how he as a Pastor handles people coming to him with struggles of sin. He also addresses the aspect of humility that must come with confronting these situations. Joel emphasizes the importance of being okay with being vulnerable and weak in order to receive the grace of the Lord.
Joel says being from Southern California is at the core of his personality. Joel was born and raised in San Diego. He has a B.S. in Business Administration and earned his M. Div from Westminster Seminary in California.
Joel and his wife Ruth have been married for 15 years and have two children. Joel has served as a deacon for 12 years, a Ruling Elder for 3 years and is a Teaching Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. He currently serves as the Associate Pastor for Family and Discipleship at North City Presbyterian Church.
Interact with Joel on Twitter. You can also listen to his podcast with his Mom and Sister called Front Porch with the Fitzes. The trio talk about a variety of topics and bring the humor that runs so deep in their family to each episode.
