Our Camp Pastor

Jesse Joyner

Jesse graduated from Taylor University (Upland, IN) and from Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky, studying the Bible and pastoral ministry. He is currently working on a PhD in Educational Studies at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. During his time in college, he realized he could teach kids and families about the Bible using the juggling routines he had developed. So in 1999, Jesse started a “juggling ministry” that taught the message of the Gospel in this creative way.  He later served a term as the President of the Christian Jugglers’ Association and has also held memberships with the International Jugglers Association, The Fellowship of Christian Magicians, and the World Clown Association.  He has had the privilege of performing for audiences in over 30 states and on 3 continents.
