Inspirational Speaker Who Suffered Severe Burns

Joel is a young man whom God has transformed from a lifeless lump of coal into a diamond of rare beauty. God has allowed Joel to beat insurmountable odds in order to live a life of blessing and honor.

Burned beyond recognition at the age of two, when a tractor trailer smashed into his families car at a toll booth; Joel sustained an 85 percent burn injury. He has learned to accept his circumstances and excel beyond all expectations. Joel has an authentic platform from which to speak to God’s grace, goodness, and love. He proves that the extraordinary is within everyone’s grasp.

Joel has lived a life of excellence. Always a leader in student government—Joel was student body president in high school, and senior class vice-president in college. Eagle scout, captain of his soccer team, Olympic torch bearer, Discover Card National tribute award winner, and Citizen of the Year, are just some of his accomplishments. He has been lauded by governors, senators, and presidents.

Joel has been seen twice on The Today Show, starred in PBS documentaries, seen on 48 hours with Dan Rather,and appeared on Emmy and Peabody award winning Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel. He has been filmed for Italian National Television, German and Dutch-T.V. Joel has tried his hand at acting-and can be seen October 17 on PAX-TV’s Sue Thomas FBEye. He has appeared in magazines and newpapers throughout the U.S.

Speaking in front of churches,colleges, youth events, civic events,and professional groups, since high school-Joel is at ease in front of youth and adults alike.
