Meet Joe Kendrick, Executive Director of Christian Mission

Joe believes in being a good neighbor. He believes the best value someone can offer is to treat an individual how they want to be treated. His hope and his goal is to do the same. That is with respect, love, dignity.  “You are an important person and you have value,” Joe says. “I am here to help you however I can. To help you live out a meaningful story in your life.”


 Joe and his wife, Lacy Kendrick, live in Oklahoma City with their two boys, Connor and Duncan, and dogs Pongo, Strawback, Bear, and Lilybelle. All three boys enjoy digging through old toy shops and farmers markets for unique GI Joes and Transformers, along with the occasional Comic-Con visit. They do toy photography in their spare time. Lacy indulges them and, with only mild success, occasionally tries to convert Connor and Duncan into Harry Potter fans. All four Kendricks are actively involved in youth sports at the Y, whether it’s playing, coaching, or cheering from the sidelines.
