Joe Tuson

Lay Elder

Originally from South Africa, Joe had the privilege of growing up with Christian parents and committed his life to Jesus at a young age. He moved to England as a teenager, where he met his future wife Becky, and they eventually moved to San Francisco for work.

The Tusons heard about Reality SF through a friend and walked into Everett Middle School on their second day in the city. They felt the presence of God in worship and instantly knew they were going to stay!

As a Lay Elder serving in the eldership of Reality SF, Joe is most passionate about prayer and longs for us to prioritize intimacy with Jesus above everything. He works as a CTO at an SF startup, and he and Becky live in the Sunset with their sons Zach and Samson and daughter Hannah. If you’d like to have a long conversation about prayer, coffee, books, low-sugar eating, finances, parenting, or music, Joe is your man!
