Pastor Joe 4

Joe Bowker


Pastor Bowker is quite familiar with the Middle Georgia area, having been reared in Macon most of his life. He and his wife, Tina, also a Macon native, are both graduates of Gilead Christian Academy here in Macon as well as Baptist University of America. They were married on July 25, 1980 and have four children: Laura, Joseph, Brian, and Leslie.  God has also blessed them with two grandchildren.  Pastor and Tina served with their children for many years in Mexico as missionaries. The Bowkers came to Berean in July of 2003 and count it a privilege to serve the Lord with their church family.
