joe_smallerHello everyone! I’m Dr. Joe Hernandez. I grow up in the “LD” track (learners disability) in the United States in California’s Los Angles County School district. I am fourth of six children and my mother had me at the age of 21. My father was murdered when I was 9 years old. My family is too messed up to mention here. And I don’t want to embarrass any one. “Fought” growing up what seems like everyone all the time. I wrestled with really bad drug and alcohol addiction and never want to face the experience I had in those dark days again. I am more committed to learning, listening and leading others with encouragement to pursue their Destiny than you can imagine. Because as an adult I tested at 8th grade level in English, reading, and comprehension. But I gave the pieces of my life to Jesus and he changed the story altogether. I will never forget how I was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit. I graduated from Rhema Bible College in Tulsa, Oklahoma, graduating from the Pastors’ class. After that I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Church Leadership from Bethany University in Santa Cruz, California. Then I went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Golden Gate Theological Seminary in San Francisco, California. I earned a Doctorate focusing on “Marriage Enrichment” from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I promise you I love my wife, son and daughter far beyond what you are used to. I have been in full time ministry since March 1995. I have been graced to minister in churches all over the US and several countries in conferences, camps, crusades, conventions and dozens and dozens of congregations.
