From a young age Neil was agreeable to the gospel message, but the example of others following Jesus helped him see the value of following God with his life.

Since then, the Lord has transformed Neil’s desires into much more than he could have imagined.

We’re joined by Neil’s brother Lee and Chris and Kevin Baker. We also talk about how a vision and partnership for missions in India was born, Neil’s burden for personal finance, the VFW building, stories from construction and property maintenance, and more. We got this one in right before social distancing and staying at home.

Listener discretion is advised, as this episode is definitely GP-13.

Brian (Part 1)

On the first episode of a two part series, Brian was raised a rule following catholic. Introverted, but faithful he began questioning his existing beliefs and seeking answers. In college, he met Nick and the two friends eventually found Jesus through a carpool. We talk about Brian’s upbringing, what that time in college was like for both Brian and Nick, and Brian’s pursuit of Mandy. We’re also joined by Kevin Baker.


Ted was raised to value hard work and success, but a chance encounter changed his course and redefined what that would look like going forward. Now, the Lord is working to make his dream a reality in ways he could have never imagined while giving others significance too – on the farm. We are joined by Ted’s wife, Indre and my wife, Lauren.


Joel grew up in a Christian home where truth was paramount. God worked to use his discontent for the institutional church and his pursuit of a PhD to bring him to Northeast Ohio and give him a vibrant campus ministry. We also talk about “project bankruptcy”, a vision for our church’s future, and reflections on his father’s life. We are joined by Chris and Kevin Baker.

Andrew (Part 1)

On part one of a very special two part episode series of This Joe Show, we keep it all in the family. I’m joined by Andrew and his older sister – my wife and co-host Lauren. We talk about how even though he walked away from the church, the Lord never stopped pursuing Andrew.
