Verbally and sexually abused by his quick-tempered alcoholic father, his childhood was filled with loneliness, hurt, and lots of covering up.
Before he turned 13 years old, he watched his father rape his mom, went through the hurt of his parent's divorce, lived in a YWCA shelter, and spent three months in a psychiatric hospital.
In 1991, at the age of eighteen, Joe trusted Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior.
As an evangelist, Joe weaves the tragedy of his childhood with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Full of energy, genuineness, and enthusiasm, Joe connects with crowds through his transparency and love for His Savior.

You will see students' and families' lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit and through Joe's transparency and love for His Savior.
