REV. JOSEPH "JOEY" PUSATERI

Senior Minister

Joey Pusateri is an ordained Disciples of Christ minister, having earned his Master of Divinity from Lexington Theological Seminary. He is also a graduate of Indiana University in Bloomington, IN (BA, Comparative Literature). Before responding to the call of ministry, Joey worked in sales, marketing, project planning and leadership. He served Middletown Christian Church and Simpsonville Christian Church before accepting the call to First Christian Church in Danville. He has been recognized for excellence in preaching by various organizations and is frequently asked to share his powerful and passionate messages as a guest preacher. Joey believes the hope available to us from God in Christ is sufficient to sustain life, powerful enough to change the world, and the birthright of every human being. He envisions congregations and communities revitalized and transformed by that hope, and he commits himself to the realization of that vision through preaching, teaching, and leading. Joey is optimistic about the future of the church, knowing that anything that belongs to the God of the resurrection is never in peril of extinction. It is his great joy to serve that church as a disciple of Jesus. ​Joey’s wife, Jennifer, is a UDL (Universal Design for Learning) specialist and a PhD student at the University of Kentucky. They have two daughters:  Kira and Sadie.
