Joe was born in 1955 and was raised in a small Pennsylvania coal mining town. He accepted Yeshua (Jesus) in 1980, and served Him in many different ministries and still serves Him. He had a brother many years ago who spent most of his adult life in prison.
After bringing his mother to several different prisons all over Pennsylvania he noticed that many of the inmates (men and women) never had anyone to visit them. When his brother was released he didn’t stay focused on his freedom but got in trouble again. He died of a heart attack at 48.
Joe believes it is very important to visit and continue staying connected even after some are released. They need fellowship with people who know Hashem and support by being in a ministry that they are familiar. What better an advocate to the prisons and can relate very well with those still in bonds because they have been there.
