Joe Laux

Joe Laux has over 40 years of media sales experience in TV, radio, newspaper, and social media.  He retired in 2018 from a 15-year career at KARE 11.  At KARE 11 he maintained an account list of 25-45 clients and had an annual billing of $4-$5 million dollars.

4 years ago, he became a credentialed pastor and has served as an associate pastor at two different local churches.  He currently serves as the Community Engagement Pastor at Riverdale Church in Andover.  He feels his experience working in the marketplace helping businesses of many kinds grow and his faith walk and training are a perfect combination for this role as community leader.  As he likes to say, he can’t find the concept of retirement in the Bible so he is committed to helping the business community around Riverdale Church thrive as long as he can.
