Twin Valley Alliance Church


Meet the Pastor

Joel McGarvey

Lead Pastor

     Pastor Joel McGarvey and his wife Lynn came to Twin Valley Alliance in 2011 after serving for 15 years as missionaries in the countries of Peru and Argentina. 


     Both Joel and Lynn were raised in upstate New York and met while studying at Nyack College.  They have two adult children: Laura, recently married, and Daniel, a student at Messiah College. 


     Pastor Joel enjoys reading in his spare time and loves the game of soccer.  He also has an identical twin, but since he lives 250 miles away, you don’t need to worry about getting them mixed up. 


     Pastor Joel’s greatest joy in ministry is teaching the Word of God and seeing people grow in their faith.
