Joseph Barlow has been ministry minded most of his life. Since his salvation at 11 and his call to the ministry at 17 he has kept his eyes on God’s call for his life.
Joe received his bachelors degree in Music Theory and Composition, then married Nancy Pictor after she finished her nursing degree.
Seven children have come forth from this blessed marriage, each child a gift from God.
Much business experience was Joe’s preparation for ministry along with serving as a worship leader, audio engineer, Music Ministry Coordinator, Bible School Director and staff pastor.
Joe has a call to the nations as well as a mantle of fatherhood. Many seek his counsel on a wide variety of matters.
Joe’s musical recordings have ministered to many, his guitar playing, it is said, seems to “open heaven”.
Being led by the Spirit is the essential element of Joe’s ministry and his life. Romans 8 says, “They that are led by the Spirit are Sons of God.”
Drawing people to God, to relationship with Him, to experience Him, to know Him; that’s the focus of Joe’s life.
The church he founded and pastors, Family Life Christian Center, is a body of believers who are very loving, a great family and very missions minded.
It has been said that, “People mature in Christ under Joe’s ministry.” Proverbs 22:1 says, “A good name is more to be desired than silver and gold.”
