Hi, I’m Joe.

I work on staff at Tri-Cities Baptist Church in Gray, TN, as well as on the Global Engagement team at SEND Network. I am currently  pursuing a PhD in Apologetics at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. And I live in East Tennessee with my wife and our two kids.

If you’ve never heard the whole gospel before, you can read that here.
