The joy of my life is pastoring Elizabeth Chapel Baptist Church. I love ministering to people through preaching God’s Word, encouraging other to live a Jesus honoring life and to reach the unsaved and unchurched.

Joel began his ministry as the pastor at Elizabeth Chapel in November of 2015.

Joel and Diane Wood were high school sweethearts and married after graduation in 1971. Through years of college and seminary God blessed them with four children.

Both sons now serve as pastors, both daughters are also in the ministry. Their hobbies are time spent with their 12 grandchildren, ages ranging from preschoolers to college graduates.




Youth ministry is more than just a providing a safe and fun atmosphere for young men and women to enjoy. It, also, is a time to prepare students for college and life after school. The youth are not only the church of tomorrow, but they are the church today.
