Joseph started worshipping here at The Moody Church while Alan Redpath was the senior pastor. Joseph and both of his parents came to saving faith in Jesus Christ as a result of the presentation of the gospel by a Moody Church missionary couple, Steven and Jeanette Antoniuk. Joseph earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Roosevelt University (Chicago) and his Juris Doctorate from DePaul University College of Law (Chicago). He worked as an attorney specializing in real estate tax assessment law. Joseph volunteered here at The Moody Church and then was asked to be a part of the staff in 1999. His title is Coordinator of Public Relations and Security, but most of his time he spends as the doorkeeper giving God the glory. One of Joseph’s favorite verses is Psalm 84:10; it states, “For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” Joseph enjoys classical music, the Bible, literature, and walking along a body of water or a beautifully landscaped area with his beloved wife, Rose. Joseph met Rose here at The Moody Church; they married in October, 2001.
