Hampstead Baptist Church Leadership

Hampstead Baptist Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.

Joey Canady

Senior Pastor


joey@hampsteadbaptist.org

Joey Canady was called to serve as Hampstead Baptist Church's Interim Pastor in February of 2014. He became Senior Pastor in May of 2015. Prior to that, he served as Pastor and Associate Pastor in several churches in southeast NC.

Joey’s desire is for God to be glorified in the local church. It’s his strong conviction that the local church is God’s “plan A” for the propagation of the gospel… “I love the local church because it’s what God has sovereignly chosen for families to be discipled, evangelism to be prompted, and missions to be launched; all for God’s glory and our good”

He graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1996 and continually strives to increase his knowledge in the gospel by surrounding himself with godly mentors, gifted writers, and good friends.

Pastor Joey has been happily married for 34 to his wife, Ramona. They have two Children, and two grandchildren.
