Evangelist Joe Veal will return to Emmanuel Baptist Church in Midland, MI for a much anticipated revival. Joe’s bio follows.
Pray for a pouring out of the Holy Spirit before, during, and after the revival.
Raised in Milledgeville GA, Joe T. Veal served as a Marine and had a career as a golf course architect, which included more than a decade working for PGA champion Arnold Palmer. Joe was involved in the design and/or construction of more than 25 championship-level golf courses across the world… yet considers his greatest achievement to be living each day as a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ.
But in 1998, Joe’s life was riddled with sin and emptiness. His family, his job… his very life… hung in the balance.
Joe was saved after hearing the Gospel, through the person of Jesus Christ, and his life was miraculously transformed. Since 1999, Joe has preached and shared the Gospel, across America and the world, with a unique, down-to-earth style. He has dedicated his life to winning people into the Kingdom of God with every resource he has available.
In 2004, Joe formed the team that began You Turn Ministries, with a focus on southeast Africa. Through You Turn, millions have heard the Gospel, orphans have been rescued through a Lighthouse care program, and key leaders have been trained to sustain a church planting movement.
Married in 1985, Joes and his wife, Liz, have four children and reside in Springboro, OH. They attend Urbancrest Baptist Church where Joe continues to serve as Staff Evangelist. In addition to his other work experience, Joe has been a Children’s Pastor for Urbancrest Baptist Church and a church planter for the North American Mission Board.
