Senior Pastor- Joe Thrower
I have been serving as pastor at Prince Avenue since 2012. I first came to Prince Avenue when I was in college and loved the people here. I would have never dreamed that I would eventually be leading the church that was so foundational to me during my college years. It has been truly amazing to see how God is using this church to expand His Kingdom both in Oakwood and Hannibal.
I love being outside, playing church league softball, and all things St. Louis Cardinals. I also greatly enjoy coffee and talking with people. My greatest love besides the Lord is being with my crazy family. My wife Julie and I have two daughters, Kylene and Macey, and one son Jack. We would love to get to know you better.
Youth Pastor- Ethan Huff
Prince Avenue has been apart of my life for quite some time now. I started attending Prince Avenue when I was a freshman in college in 2011 and knew this was where God wanted me. I began helping out with worship on Sunday mornings and being involved in the different ministries the church has. After being apart of the youth ministry for many years I was asked to become the new youth pastor in 2014. Since then my wife and I have loved every second of it! We truly are blessed to be able to play a part in these youths lives.
Most of my hobbies have to do with the outdoors. I love ridding motorcycles, going kayaking, running, and playing some good-old ultimate frisbee! I met my beautiful wife in the summer of 2012 which soon lead to our marriage in May of 2014. We have a energetic little dog who we love and keeps life entertaining.
