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.
