Joe Davis served as youth pastor here in Sarasota from 1999-2005. He has a Masters in Theology and is fondly called “Pastor Joe” by students, parents and principals of local high schools. In 2008, he and his wife Laura created a non-profit organization called MobilePreacher.org. The concept was devoted entirely to developing a wide campaign to impact troubled youth throughout Sarasota County. In order to reach out to a broader spectrum of youth and offer more services, the board of Mobile Preacher raised funds to make a down payment on a facility. The Nightlife Center was created to fulfill a dream of the Davis’ to make a difference in the future of our youth.
Tony joined the Nightlife Center in August of 2009. He works with local churches and other youth organizations to learn how the Nightlife Center work together with them. Tony is also a specialist in Family Ministries, and serves as a resource to churches regarding how to strengthen the families in their congregations.
