Joel Duncan Director of Local Outreach
Before taking on his role here as Director of Local Outreach, Joel’s work experience included non-profit marketing, teaching mathematics, community development, and most recently, serving as after-school coordinator in our Puente del Pueblo ministry. Joel, who holds a degree in anthropology, met his wife, Melissa, when both were students at Wheaton College. Joel and Melissa share a love for making a difference in the lives of others, and have lived and worked as Peace Corps volunteers in West Africa, served in refugee ministry, and fostered children through Safe Families. Joel is thrilled to be working at Wheaton Bible Church in a role that combines many of his work and personal experiences. Joel’s interests include soccer, languages, and exploring new places. He also loves to read but has already been out-paced in reading by his three book-loving young children.
