Joe was born on August 25, 1963. He married Dee in 1985. They have three grown children – all boys – Patrick, Jay, and Shannon. Joe and Dee were blessed with their 1st grandchild, Joseph William IV in Feb 2012. The following year they were blessed with two granddaughters, by adoption, Bailey Michelle 14 and Katie Elizabeth 13. Raised in a musical family, Joe started playing country music at an early age. By fifteen, he was playing in clubs all around the southern Illinois area and had gained a reputation as a lead guitarist. However, in 1984, Joe dedicated his life to the Lord and gave his music to God. After giving his life and talent to the Lord, God blessed Joe with a gift as a singer and songwriter. In 1993 at the age of 30, Joe was called into the ministry. He began to preach God’s word and served as an Associate Pastor, Interim Pastor, and Senior Pastor. Joe feels that his experience as a pastor helps him spread God’s word. His messages of word and song are simple, but passionate. He speaks with a humble heart through the leading of the Holy Spirit. His songs are intended to strengthen the American Christian family, and give hope to the nonbeliever. Joe’s desire is that his ministry will reach every person no matter their status in life.
Joe arranges all of his projects; keeping his CDs fresh and alive from the first track to the last. As a singer, Joe’s rich baritone voice comes through with a country style that makes him not only an artist, but a musical stylist.Joe has preformed in a variety of venues such as the Illinois State Fair; the DuQuoin State Fair; the Troubadour Theatre in Nashville, Tennessee; Circle Cross Rodeo at the AgriCenter Showplace Arena in Memphis, Tennessee; “Conquering the Beast” Pro Bull Riding League in DuQuoin, Illinois; and NASCAR events at the Talladega Super Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Chicago Land Speedway, and Pocono Speedway; community festivals and of course churches.
