Joel Codner became a part of the East End church of Christ family in January 2019. Originally from Jamaica, he pursued his studies at the Jamaica School of Preaching and Biblical Studies, where he was well-equipped in doctrinal matters and prepared for ministry work.
Before standing behind the pulpit at East End, he served the Pembroke Hall and Barnes Pen congregations in Jamaica, delivering sermons, teaching bible classes to the young people as well as the general congregation, and guiding the activities of the body.
Joel is an avid believer in meeting people where they are, using new methods to deliver God’s unchanged word. Check out his Christian YouTube channel, JoelJovaine, which has proven very effective in sharing teachings and thoughts on various doctrinal, and sometimes taboo, issues.
An avid basketball fan, he’s likely to agree that LeBron James is the GOAT. When he’s not on the court, or recording videos, he can be found playing a game of tag with one, or all of the kids at church. He is ecstatically married to his beautiful wife Kiffra.
