Fall Ministry Project – October 12-14, 2018


Fall Ministry is an opportunity for youth to fellowship with others and serve the church in exciting, practical ways.

Every year, high school-aged youth from around the presbytery are invited to the Fall Ministry Project–an event where the youth are able to serve the presbytery’s churches by helping with many different projects. The event begins on a Friday evening with a message from a guest speaker. Later on in the night, the youth are divided into various teams to be sent off to different churches throughout the presbytery. The following day, these teams will travel out to these congregations and aid them in various service projects, in addition to participating in any fun activities that the church may have planned. The youth then have an opportunity to worship with that congregation on Sunday morning before returning back to Second Reformed Presbyterian Church for pickup Sunday afternoon. We hope to see you there!


Pastor Joel Hart

Born and raised in Indianapolis, Joel Hart will become associate pastor at Second Reformed Presbyterian Church in the summer of 2018. While working in corporate finance, Joel served as an intern at Second RP from 2014-2016. There, he grew to love seeing Christ proclaimed and lives transformed through the ministry of the church. He graduated from the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (Pittsburgh) in 2018 and has now returned to Second RP to assist in the labor for the gospel in Indianapolis.  Joel’s great desire is to proclaim the gospel of our Triune God to see saints, disciples, and witnesses established for His kingdom.  He enjoys running, reading, basketball, and spending time with family. Joel is married to Orlena, and they have three children: David (4), Jenny (2), and Elisha (1).
