I’ve known Joey since the early 1980’s. He was my youth minister back then. Over the years I’ve watch as he has allowed God to use his life to reach others and to make a difference in their lives. Joey’s impact and missions have spanned multiple decades and he continues his work with Joey Potter Missions with a number of activities in places like Kenya, Mexico, Bahamas, and Dominican Republic as well as locally as the need arises. He also works closely with local churches, the sports programs and other organizations from the Southeast US.
For the last few years, I’ve joined Joey on a mission to Tecate, Mexico. This was life changing experience for me and continues to fuel a lot of my spiritual growth as I’ve continued to serve. Almost everyone who goes on this mission says they find God there. You can read about my experiences in Tecate here.
God has led Joey into some of the most unlikely places, but he always shows up next to him. After the Gatlinburg fires ravaged the city, Joey began working with some of the most underserved members of the community. Many are immigrants who have come to the US seeking a new life and are trying to work out of the cycle of poverty and provide a new life for their children.
The Pointe Church in Belmont, NC is my home church. We have a number of community programs dedicated to supporting the local community as well as missions around the world. These missions include supporting vulnerable children, helping families that are in need, and supporting the spiritual growth of our community. Here are a few of the ministries where I serve:
The Point Church – First Impressions / Connections
On the some Sunday’s you’ll find me serving my team and others as we welcome our visitors and owners to The Pointe Church. Our job is to help each person take their next step in following Jesus and we do that through service.
Collision Youth Group – Sixth Grade Boys
One of my favorite activities is working with our young people. Together along with my pastors and other small group leaders we have fun and share Jesus and our faith with these young men with the goal of helping them work through the struggles of growing up. Our hope is that they will find Jesus, his love, and develop a foundation of faith in him.
El Zapatillo, Guatemala Mission
You can read about my mission trip to Guatemala here and how God used it to impact my life and the lives of those our group went to serve.
Bridges International is a caring community which seeks to help international students by meeting practical, social, and spiritual needs. They are committed to serving, promoting social connections and engaging in spiritual conversations with international students so that students become leaders internationally! Bridges is part of the Cru ministry at Duke. All of the staff at Duke have lived and studied overseas. They understand the unique challenges facing international students and are here to serve all the international students and visiting scholars (and their families) at Duke University.
Each year I look forward to working as a camp counselor at the Bridge Camp. This has been one of the most impactful and meaningful experiences I’ve had in working with children. These young people are given an opportunity to attend camp with other foster children who find themselves in similar situations.
I met Carlos on a mission trip to Tecate, Mexico a few years ago and he impressed me with his zeal, passion and love of young people. Carlos loves Jesus and he spends his life sharing his light to the world in everything he does.
