JOEL HOOTON
SUPPORT SERVICES DIRECTOR

586-944-5870

Joel has been attending Lakeside since 2001.  He met his wife Heather at Lakeside and they have 4 wonderfully energetic children - Riley, Nicklas, Justin and Anna. He enjoys curling up under a nice warm blanket and reading a good book....oh wait, that is Heather. While Joel does appreciate the importance of reading, he would prefer to do some rock climbing or go on an obstacle course run with friends. And when it is colder outside, a video game or two will do just fine.

Over the years he has been involved in various children's ministries and served as a deacon. In his role as Director of Support Services, Joel is responsible for overseeing the various support ministries of the church.
