J.J. was born in Alabama courtesy of his dad’s travel agent, the U.S. Army, but has lived in the Baltimore area since he was three. A proud graduate of Towson High and the University of Delaware, J.J. has spent 23 years as a structural engineer at RK&K in Baltimore. He has served as Elder at Hunt Valley Church since 2013.
J.J. and his wife, Stacie, have been married 21 years and they have 3 children – Britt, 15; Will, 13; and Josh, 9. The Farley family lives in Timonium. They joined the church in June of 2011.
It wasn’t until he started dating Stacie that J.J. began attending church. While attending a church in Bel Air, he joined a small group filled with other scientists and engineers. During a study of The Purpose Driven Life, God awakened J.J. to the reality of His existence. After returning to Timonium, J.J. served on the Staff-Parish Relations committee at a Towson area church and led an adult Sunday School class. Here at Hunt Valley, J.J. attends PointBreak classes as often as possible, is a small group leader, a scripture reader, substitute children’s leader and one of the worship hosts at the Satellite Services. He also attends Bible Study Fellowship during the school year.
In his free time, J.J. “enjoys” hitting the gym, chauffeuring children to extracurricular activities, and collapsing on the couch.
