Pastors and Staff

Our Leadership Team

Our Pastors and staff are invaluable in directing and coordinating the various ministries and volunteers at Advent. 
 

Rev. Dr. Joe Skillen

Head Pastor

Joe is passionate about sharing from the Scriptures and mobilizing the church for faithful mission. He received a BA from Sterling College, a MA in Practical Theology and a MA in Organizational Leadership from Regent University, and a Doctor of Ministry from George Fox University.
Joe has spent most of his life in Kansas and has served churches in the Wichita area. Most recently, Joe served as the Pastor for Young Adults at Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Atlanta Georgia. Along with his ministry experience, Joe has experience teaching theology and ministry classes at Sterling College, Friends University, and Tabor College.
Joe and his wife Ginger have two children, daughter Avery and son Ezra. There is a good chance that you will find Joe at a sporting event, enjoying great coffee and conversation with others, or hanging out with his family.
