Our Leaders
Rev. Joel Samuelson
Associate Pastor

Pastor Joel serves as the Associate Pastor of House of Prayer, where he is in his fifteenth year of ministry. He is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with people. He believes that people need to come to church, not to prove their faithfulness, but so they can continue to be reminded how faithful God continues to be in their lives. He enjoys working with youth of all ages and sharing his faith with them. One hobby he particularly enjoys is fishing. Pastor Joel graduated from New London-Spicer High School, Gustavus Adolphus College, and Luther Theological Seminary. His greatest joy in life is being married to wife Amanda, and being a dad to his seven year old daughter Dakota, five year old daughter Eden, and 1 year old son Jonah. Pastor Joel has always seen House of Prayer as a church with a "small town feeling" where everyone cares about each other. The church and working with Pastor Dave have been a true blessing to him and he hopes you will come to share in those same blessings.
