Joey Landara - Youth Minister

Joey, his wife Amanda and his children Nicholas and Zachary come from the Kansas City area. Joey and Amanda both served and completed the program of Teen Challenge in the New England area. Teen Challenge is known around the world for the discipleship ministry that was created by Rev. David Wilkerson. After getting married in 2009, the Landara's had to decide where they wanted to begin their new life together.  Amanda has roots in the mid-west and her mother is originally from Texhoma, so Amanda motivated the family to leave the east coast and begin life in Kansas City. The family served at church and always wanted to take it a step further but God didnt provide the opportunity. However, God works in great ways as He has opened the door for Joey and his family to serve at FCC with our youth! "I always had a passion after Jesus got my attention for the youth," Joey stated. He wants to make an impact on our community and allow others to grow and know Christ in both the good and bad times just as he is experiencing in his life. If you ever need to reach Joey please call the church's office for his information. We look forward to the great things God is planning for our Youth at The Summit and FCC.
