Steven Kagey

Interim Director of Camping Ministries


Steven Kagey is no stranger to the Joy El team. He has previous served on staff as the Food Service Coordinator for three years, before needing to move back to the west coast to care for family. Steven has been involved in Christian camping ministry for over 18 years in a variety of roles. Steven also served as a missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) for two years.

Steven and his wife, Mikayla, have been married 13 years and have two sons, Jack and Josiah, who love to be involved at camp! In his free time, he loves to take adventures with his family and watching sports (particularly the Seattle Seahawks!!).

His favorite verse is Philippians 2:15, “so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[a] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky.”
