pastorReverend Joe Albright

There is a saying that “when one door closes, another door opens.”  On September 1, 2011, the Dial Hope Foundation called the Reverend Joe Albright to serve as the lead Pastor for the Dial Hope ministry.

Joe began his ministry in Sarasota, Florida as an associate pastor, and it was in this capacity that he worked alongside the Reverend Dr. Roger Kunkel.  Roger was a colleague who became a mentor and treasured friend.  From Sarasota, Joe was called to Jacksonville, Florida where he served as the Head of Staff at Hodges Boulevard Presbyterian Church. Joe is now the Pastor at Geneva Presbyterian Church in Switzerland, Florida. Visit Geneva Presbyterian’s website at

“I believe deeply in the power of the Gospel to bring hope, love, and new life.  I admire the means by which my friend Roger used his intellect and passion to share the Gospel in new and creative ways.  And I have seen firsthand how this beautiful ministry has touched people’s lives.  For all these reasons, I am thrilled to help continue this important ministry by serving as the next lead pastor of Dial Hope.”
