Minister of Youth & Discipleship
Joel grew up the with both parents serving in ministry. As a result of being entrenched in ministry, Joel felt a sense of calling to ministry. This sense only grew when he attended Covenant College (a small Christian College on Lookout Mountain, GA). Since Joel’s completion of college, he has worked in the golf industry, interned at two churches, and worked foster care at Hopetree Family Services.
Joel and His wife, Elizabeth, met while Elizabeth was in her senior year at Hollins University through a local church ministry. After dating for a few years, they were married in August of 2019. Both Joel and Elizabeth love hiking, the outdoors, golf, and of course Auburn football (War Eagle). In May of this year, Joel graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling.

Director of Children's Ministry
Peggy is a native of Botetourt County and has been a part of the Mill Creek family since 2005. In that time, she has worked with all ages of children from birth through High School. She quickly discovered that ministering to the younger children, especially two years and up is where her heart is. She is also passionate about mission work and has served with the various mission teams at Mill Creek over the years. Her passion is working with Preescolar Cristiano Brisas del Este in the Dominican Republic, and she currently serves on that team. This is a Christian based preschool that Mill Creek has partnered with since 2004.
Peggy and her husband, Gino, live in Buchanan with their two very spoiled miniature daschunds. They both enjoy playing golf and being outdoors in God’s beautiful creation.
