Joey Smith

Associate Pastor of Evangelism and Missionsoffice: 337-239-3733mobile: 318-789-3883

Joey is from Monroe, Louisiana and trusted in Christ when he was fourteen years old. In the summer of 2012 Joey began to feel the Lord calling him to preach the gospel. He left coaching high school football in 2015 to pursue ministry training at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.

While enrolled as a student in the Master of Divinity program, Joey served as youth minister at Inglewood Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, Texas for three and a half years. Before serving at Inglewood, he served as college ministry intern at Swartz First Baptist Church for two years. 

Joey’s passion is to share the good news of Jesus Christ. His desire is to equip and encourage the church to engage the lost; boldly proclaiming the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16).

Joey and his wife Maura were married on December 15, 2012. The Lord has blessed them with two precious daughters, Mitchell and Margaret. They love spending time together and gathering with their family, friends, and church.
