Teen class teacher and youth leader
Torrey Joyner is a graduate of Emmanuel College with a Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies and International Affairs with a minor in Religious Studies. He received his Master of Theological Studies from the Boston University School of Theology.
While at Emmanuel College, Torrey was heavily involved in campus activities as a member of the men’s basketball team, president of the Black Student Union, and sitting on multiple search committees to hire new faculty.
Torrey has also participated in service trips to South Africa and the Dominican Republic. His experience as a teacher includes working as a Math and English Tutor for three cohorts of incoming college students and after graduating from Emmanuel College, teaching sixth grade and coaching high school basketball.
In 2015, he chose to attend seminary to develop his understanding of God, scripture and spirituality as it pertains to carrying out “The Great Commission.” While at seminary, Torrey developed the question: “what are the fundamental differences between human beings, and once we identify those differences, how might we go about reconciling them?” For Torrey, the answer to that question rests in the minds of the youth as they have the power to determine what the world will be like for future generations.
