Pastor Joel Ostrom grew up at Quamba Baptist and after a time away, came back and began getting more and more involved in the church. The path led from team teaching a Sunday school class to serving as a deacon. Eventually the church called him as the associate pastor for prayer and devotion. Currently he teaches, preaches, and helps lead the service as needed. He is the husband of Michelle and the father of Joy, Karina, Julia, Sophia and Benjamin. Joel works full time in construction and loves to study. 
 Because of the special relationship   QBC has with the Christian church    in Northern Nigeria, Pastor Ivan wears the traditional clothing of the Hausa people on Easter Sunday.
