Joe Martin

Chief Discipleship Officer

Dr. Joe accepted Jesus as his Savior at age 27, but as his Lord at age 33. A product of a teenage mother, he went from the projects of Miami to becoming the youngest professor ever hired in the state of Florida at age 24. And although Dr. Joe succeeded as a male, he failed as a man – costing him his marriage, family, wealth, and integrity. But everything changed after he was discipled by an older man; and by God’s grace, he’s now happily remarried with a blended family of two.

Dr. Joe now disciples men all over the world as an award-winning speaker, author, educator, columnist, and host of the #1 top-rated radio podcast on iTunes for Christian men called “Real Men Connect.” His remarkable story of redemption from abject poverty, abandonment, abuse, and addiction, serves as a witness to God’s amazing grace.
