Our Pastor

David Cobb 
brings a broad ecumenical, academic, and social-justice background to Spirit of Joy. He's taught at Texas Christian University and Brite Divinity School, served with the World Council of Churches and local ecumenical organizations in Illinois, Texas, and Virginia, and been a vocal advocate for GLBT causes. 

Studies in theology, Bible, spirituality, ethics, education, and church-state relations continue to enrich his spiritual journey, as does his love of poetry, theater, bread-baking, and gardening.  

He is married with a teenage son and, when the weather is warm enough, may be found on a bicycle.
