Assistant Pastor Called to Clearview C&MA Church

The Clearview Christian & Missionary Alliance Church is welcoming a new Assistant Pastor, Joel Geer, with his wife, Laura and their son, Josiah. The Geers will be joining in ministry at the church beginning in mid-June.

Joel was raised in Camden County, New Jersey. Called to the ministry at an early age, he had dedicated his life to the Lord and to His service. That call that would be confirmed many times through the people around him and through opportunities he was given to serve in Christian ministry. Motivated by his calling, Joel attended Nyack College, in Nyack, NY, graduating in 2011 with a degree in Bible and Theology.

In the summer of 2009, Joel met his wife, Laura, at a summer retreat in Ocean City, NJ, where it was love at first sight! One year later, to the day, they were engaged, and the following year, to the day, they were married.
