The Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) is very excited to share the news about a new member of our church staff! Joel Eichler will be joining our team in July as our new Director of Student Ministries. Please join us in welcoming him and helping him feel part of this great church family!
Joel was born in Dallas, Texas but has spent most of his life in the greater Houston area. He was baptized and confirmed in the United Methodist Church and has been involved in the life of a United Methodist church his whole life. Joel has 3 years of professional youth ministry experience and has been involved in serving youth in some fashion for the last 9 years. He is passionate about building meaningful relationships and sharing the gospel with students. Joel also has been leading worship for churches, camps and events for the last 7 years.
Outside of ministry, Joel’s hobbies include playing frisbee golf, soccer, football and pretty much any sport in which he can compete. He has also played in a Texas country band for the last 6 years. Joel is an identical twin and is the youngest of 3 boys by one minute. He has the two most fun nephews an uncle could ask for, Ben and Owen, and loves spending time with them. Joel is excited for his new adventure to the Dallas area not only to serve in ministry at Prosper UMC but to be much closer to his beautiful girlfriend, Lauren, as they continue their relationship and pursue marriage together.
