Founding Pastor // Joel Sikha

Joel Sikha grew up in India, watching his parents in ministry from a young age. After walking away from church, God met Joel at a home church where He brought radical transformation to Joel's life. Since then, Joel has been passionate about sharing Jesus with others, through street evangelism, radio ministry, music, and planting home churches.

In 2010, Joel moved to Idaho and married his wife, Megan, and got involved with a local church. After serving 5 years as a youth pastor, they answered the call to plant a church and in October, 2017, the Living Church was born.

Pastor Joel is a gifted evangelist and communicator. He is passionate about making God's word relatable and bringing others to an intimate relationship with Jesus. Joel lives in Boise, Idaho with his wife and their five kids.
