Joel Foust is currently on staff at Oceans Church in San Juan Capistrano as the Media Director, overseeing the filming, editing, producing and directing of an extensive catalog of videos that have amassed hundreds of thousands of total views through their online platform. He studied production and media arts during his time at Capital Church’s Leadership College, and has since further developed his skills by getting hands-on experience in multiple media spheres. More than a career, film has become a life-long passion and his goal is to help equip the next wave of young people to not only learn a skill-set, but to understand the ins-and-outs of what makes a film great. In addition to the understanding, there will also be emphasis on excellence, godly conviction and practical application.
Joel and his wife, Melanie, spent nine years serving as the youth and young adult pastors at their church in Boise, ID. In 2018, they moved to South Orange County to help launch Oceans Church here in San Juan Capistrano. They have one daughter, Esther, and in his spare time, Joel enjoys spending time with his family and biking.
