Sandy Assembly of God

Meet Our Staff

Joel & Kimberlee Morris
Lead Pastor

Pastor Joel: My wife Kimberlee and I have two boys, John and Andrew. We have served in ministry together since co-leading an on-campus Bible Study as high schoolers, married just as we turned 20, graduated from North Central University shortly thereafter, and have walked in the call of God to preach the Word and make disciples of Christ as pastors since even before graduating. We are passionate about the local church and missions. Northwest natives, we love serving in the Oregon Ministry Network.


We've lived in environments urban, rural, and suburban. Some might think us an odd amalgamation of all three cultures, and that's probably true. We love taking our Tesla to wide open, middle-of-nowhere places, and find as much joy chatting with friends in a small-town diner as we do taking in a classical performance. We also love coffee, exploring the outdoors, traveling, making new friends, and laughing together.


Joel is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. Kimberlee is a licensed minister, and in addition to homeschooling our boys and writing a blog at, she is currently working toward earning a Master of Divinity Degree through Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in the hopes of someday becoming a professor of theology.


Joel entertains an ambitious goal to be the first pastor on the moon. Kimberlee says no.
