New Youth/Associate Pastor

Hello Petrie Memorial UMC!

My name is Joe Cox and I am very excited to join you all in July.  I was born in Oklahoma but raised in Elizabethtown, KY.  I attended Lindsey Wilson College where I played tennis and graduated with a Bachelors in Christian Ministries.  I have spent the last four years attending Asbury Theological Seminary pursing a Master’s of Divinity, which I completed this May.  I have been in ministry for 10 years beginning in camping ministry at Camp Loucon.  Youth Ministry is my passion and is what God has called and equipped me for.  I believe that youth are not just the church of the future, but that they are also an important part of the current church.

I enjoy watching and playing all kinds of sports.  I particularly enjoy the Cubs and all Louisville sports.  I prefer spending time outdoors kayaking, hiking, fishing and I’m excited to explore Todd County.  I look forward to joining you soon and I can’t wait to see what awesome things God has in store.

Camp Loucon

Camp Loucon is coming right up!  This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to have fun and learn about God at a camp that is fairly close to home.  This camp is in Leitchfield, KY and offers campers lots of outdoor activities and a week of worship and memory making.  Approximately 10 of our kids from Petrie have expressed that they would like to attend this year. The cost is: $219 for 2nd – 4th grade; $369 for 5th-12th grade. The church pays for half of the cost for each child to attend.  We are looking for sponsors to pay the remaining half  (or a portion of it) for each of the children to go.  This would be:  $110 for 2nd – 4th grade; $185 for 5th-12th grade.  However, any little bit would help.  If you would like to donate, please contact Emily Myers or Vicki Ross.  We hope to have many Happy Campers this year!!
