Listen to the complete program with Mike Farris and Joel Grewe.
Joel started his life as an advocate when he was in 6th grade and convinced his mother to homeschool him. In 2007, after working on Capitol Hill for J.C. Watts and then delving into the world of demographic research, Joel started training future leaders as Generation Joshua’s National Clubs Coordinator. He now serves as the administrator of all of Generation Joshua’s national efforts. A graduate of his hometown college, Eastern Washington University, he travels around the United States training youth to influence the political world for Christ. When Joel speaks, he draws on his 15 years of ministry experience and 10 years of political campaign experience to make the message relevant to a generation that he says, “Will change the world.” Living in the Washington, D.C. area, Joel, his wife Christie, and their 6—month—old son enjoy life in the fast lane.
