Pastor Joe and Lori Champion founded Celebration Church with a vision and heart to see people walking in their destiny. By connecting people to Christ, the church, and their call, they are seeing this life mission become a living reality.
Their passion for inspiring others to discover their own personal strengths is driven toward impacting the spiritual climate of the greater Austin area and then, the entire world.
Pastor Joe is a globally recognized leader and speaker who serves on the boards of One Hope and Oral Roberts University. He is also part of the Lead Team of the Association of Related Churches (ARC), an international church planting organization. By example, Pastor Joe equips and empowers ministry leaders to take hold of God’s calling on their lives with an emphasis on the importance of maintaining Christ-like integrity and character.
Pastor Lori has a heart to see God’s house and His people grow and flourish. In addition to leading Celebration as Co-Pastor, she travels and speaks internationally. With a rich ministry heritage and a personal depth in Christ, Pastor Lori boldly inspires and equips leaders to run in their God-given callings.
Their greatest joys in life are their family: Mason and Caroline, Connor, and Jackson.
