Joined Forces

One day, in the late 1980s, the “saint geek” met the “woman at the well.” But that was just the beginning. It would take years before Brad and Joia Farmer joined forces, got married, had kids, and launched their Four Pillars youth ministry.

Fast forward to 2012. The couple were tapped this year to bring a comprehensive youth ministry to the teenage parishioners of four Denver parishes: Blessed Sacrament, St. James, Christ the King and Good Shepherd. With providential timing, the Farmers, both 38 years old, open their latest ministry in he year Pope Benedict XVI has called for a Year of Faith with an emphasis on the new evangelization.
