“Mentorship and accountability have helped form me into the man I am today. I have been challenged, stretched and encouraged through meaningful relationships with mentors in my life. It is my passion to work with, listen to, learn from and walk alongside men who want a deeper understanding of life and how we can have a positive impact in our families, churches and communities.”

Joel brings with him a background in business and sales, having spent the last 4 years as Sales Manger with Flagger Force. He studied youth ministry at Eastern University and despite opportunities to step into a youth ministry position, Joel entered the business world.

His heart for impacting the Kingdom is evident. From serving in South Africa and Mozambique through Youth With A Mission, to leading a men’s Bible study at Flagger force. Joel exemplifies Christ wherever he goes.

“I have always felt a strong calling to ministry. After spending several years in the corporate world, and seeing the Lord use me in the marketplace, I was made aware of the position with Men of Iron. God orchestrated the rest!”
