Joel began his walk with the Lord at the early age of 12 at Shady Grove Church in Jackson, Mississippi, and has continued his walk with God ever since. Joel and his wife Jeanette were married in 1993 and built their lives on God's word. From the first day Joel and his family walked into Wells Branch Community Church in 2015, they knew they had found the family that would walk with them on their next steps of their spiritual journeys. Joel is a devoted husband, father, and servant of God. Evangelism and discipleship are the cornerstones upon which his life is built, and on this solid foundation, he continues to grow his faith by helping others through missions, small groups, prayer, and men's ministry. He is extremely passionate about encouraging and helping men break the chains of addiction. It is Joel's prayer that God will continue to guide him to fulfill the highest purpose He has for him and his family through service to the church and community.
