Joe is committed to the task of making Jesus famous and has a burning passion to see teenagers and their families come to a life-altering encounter with Jesus Christ. He absolutely believes that there is no better time in life to meet God, grow in relationship with Him, and to be empowered to serve in His Name, than as a young person.
For about half his life, Joe has served on church leadership teams, primarily as a student pastor. Joe is a former student of Gwinnett Bible College and Carver Bible College in Atlanta, and currently attends Luther Rice Bible University and Seminary. God has used him nationally and internationally to direct people into experiencing life-changing encounters with God, leading many to commit their lives to Jesus Christ.
Joe would say that his greatest accomplishment is marrying way out of his league, to Carmen, his incredible wife, and having five amazing children; Lil' Joe (23) who really is not that little, Janecia (22), Brittany (20), Chelsey (17) and Chandler (14).
Joe loves being with his family. He is a huge San Antonio Spurs fan, and is addicted to collecting loose change. He loves to read and is a movie buff. He is a people person, and has a weakness for steak and red velvet cake.
Joe's life motto is "Love God, Love People!"
