Joel Taylor is President of Joel Taylor Ministries, at least until we get a better name.
The primary focus of Joel Taylor Ministries is the verse-by-verse exposition of God’s Word.
As a Baptist, he holds no creed or confession of man above the authority of the Bible. However, if you were to snap his ear with a rubber band in order to coerce an association with a particular confession, the Abstract Confession of Faith and Doctrine of 1859, the earliest confessional statement of the SBC, would be the resulting answer.
Joel and his wife, Jennifer, and family live in Virginia, and they are just stupid happy.
Born in Little Rock Arkansas in 1961 to a Baptist pastor and a nurse, raised in the Mississippi delta region of the same state – most notably Marvell, Ark., home of Levon Helm (of ‘The Band’), Camille Collins, and his first greased-pig contest.
Joel has been preaching and writing since 1980. He is not famous, and is pretty sure he does not want to be.
