Joseph and his late wife, Florence began ministry at Pacific Bay Christian School (formerly Alma Heights Christian) in 1963. They served initially in the school and were involved in starting the church in the late sixties. They were privileged to serve together in the dual ministries of school and church until 2003 when Florence went to be with Jesus. Their responsibilities included, teaching, school maintenance, administration, worship leading and raising their family of seven children.
In 2005 Joseph was blessed to be joined in marriage and service by Jo. Joseph now serves as senior administrator for the school and on the elder board of Coastside Community Church.
