Joe was born and raised in Kansas. He grew up in a Christian family and was taught the Scriptures from a very young age. When Joe was 7 years old he realized that he was a sinner, and that because of his sins he was destined for hell. Joe went forward during an invitation at his church one night and was shown the gospel. That night Joe put his faith and trust in Jesus to save him from his sins. Joe had several opportunities to preach throughout high school and began to love studying God's Word and sharing it with others. As a junior in highschool, Joe surrendored himself to the Lord and dedicated himself to full time ministry. Joe's life verse is 1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, Forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." His desire is to be faithful in his work for Jesus Christ.
Joe graduated from Maranatha Baptist University with a BA in Pastoral Studies and a minor in Greek. While at Maranatha, Joe met his wife Emily as she was seeking her B.S. in Science. Together Joe and Emily look to serve our amazing God with their lives for His honor and glory.
