Pastor Joe Bell

Hi! My name is Joe Bell. I am a Christian pastor willing to help you. My call is to love God and love people. Born in Birmingham Alabama (Roll Tide!), I graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University and Nazarene Theological Seminary. I have served as a YMCA Director for 8 years, a Chaplain for 16 years, Director of Gaston Hope in Christ, a non-profit Tutoring program, for 18 years and counting, and a pastor since 1993.

I have served for 20 years as lead pastor at Eastside Church of the Nazarene in Gastonia, NC. I have a wife and two wonderful children, who you can meet here!


With over 20 years of ministry and business experience, I provide training and mentoring, counseling (including school, family, and other issues), couples and premarital counseling, wedding and other services. I substitute at Gaston County Schools, and also speak at churches, conferences and other events. A unique blend of humor, media comfort and leadership education and experience provide an excellent experience with Pastor Joe!

Joe Bell has helped me throughout the years time and time again. He's always there to listen and help out any way he can. He's pulled me through so very rough times in life and I feel because of him, I am a better person. The world would greatly benefit more people like him. He is not only a great counselor and coach but an awesome friend and person as well!
