Meet Our Team:

  • Joel Fether, Eastside City Life Director

    "Matthew 9:36-37 says that when Jesus 'saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.' Then he said to his disciples, 'the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.' When I read this passage I think about young people growing up today. So many of them are facing trials and suffering that they did not choose and that they don't have the resources to navigate on their own. I believe God deeply loves and has compassion on teens like this in our community. He has called my team and I to be vessels he can use to show them his love and transform their lives."
