Joel Trigger loves a good story. Books, movies and TV shows can be great but they are nothing compared to the stories told through our lives. The stories told through our lives are the best stories because they are authored by God and they all reflect the Big Story that God is telling throughout history. The center of that story is found in Jesus. Joel is passionate about using counseling to help people understand their own story and see what God is up to through it, which he was trained to do in the Master's of Counseling program at Reformed Theological Seminary. You can learn more about this idea and about Joel's counseling services here.
When Joel isn't helping people see God's work in their story, he enjoys hanging out with friends (probably swapping stories), playing disc golf, ultimate frisbee, or video games. He also enjoys being with his lovely wife Jessi no matter what they may be doing together. He feels super blessed that he and his wife are both doing the ministry they feel called to and that they get to do it side by side at River Oaks.
