Rev. Dr. Joseph McBrayer
Hi, I’m Joseph. I enjoy music, technology, photography/video, digital story telling, creativity, and learning. I am passionate about life, justice, and community — and coffee.
I’m an Associate Pastor at Oak Grove United Methodist Church in Decatur, GA (ogumc.org). I am ordained deacon in the North Ga United Methodist Church and I hold a Forestry Degree from Auburn University, as well as a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. I have previously served in ministry with Emory Wesley Fellowship, the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry’s Collegiate Ministry division, and Glenn Memorial UMC.
I grew up in West Georgia and I have lived in and around Decatur, GA for the past 12 years with my spouse, Frances, who is a social worker with Refugees. We are parents to a remarkable little girl and I’ll be happy to show to photos!
