Pastor Joe Major was born in Baton Rouge, LA and raised by his parents in Independent Baptist Churches. He received the Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 5 years old and from that time, he knew that he wanted to pastor. He served his entire childhood in churches in any way he could going soul winning, working on bus routes, and Christian camps. At the age of 18 after graduating High school he went straight to Bible college and graduated from Landmark Baptist College in 2009.
During his last year of college he married his wife Heather and they now have 3 children together. After college he remained on staff at Landmark for a year before coming to New Orleans, LA. For 3 years he worked with Calvary Baptist Church in Luling, LA where he was ordained and sent out taking the Pastorate at Faith Baptist Church in Violet, LA.
Faith Baptist Church is an old fashioned, Independent, Fundamental church that strongly believes in soul winning and carrying out the great commission. The preaching is hard, dynamic, and packed with scripture unlike most churches today who have become more like motivational speakers. At Faith Baptist there is a zeal and thirst for the word of God and for doing the works commanded to us by Christ.
