Joel joined the HSP Direct team in 2017, bringing over a dozen years of agency experience developing and growing direct mail campaigns for PACs, political candidates, and non-profit organizations. Since studying political science at James Madison University, he has put that major to use working for conservative local and statewide campaigns across the country.
Having served on the boards of small non-profit groups, as well as on the board of an international child-welfare organization, Joel is familiar with the particular needs, goals, and strategy of the religious non-profit community. He is CCNL certified by the Christian Leadership Alliance and has a concern for safeguarding limited government, traditional values, and the First Amendment in the public square.
Joel was raised in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley, where he currently lives with his wife, Kristine, and their four daughters. He is an active member of Covenant Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Harrisonburg. Joel’s personal interests include target shooting, reading biographies, watching historical documentaries, and creating dinner on the grill.
