Recently returning from missionary work in Ireland for the last 13 years, Joseph and his wife Juliet Dispensa quickly fell in love with Celebration House and its members. Now Associate Pastor at Celebration House, he teaches every Sunday morning at 9am, In-depth studies in the Word of God.
He has preached and taught in the outreach prison ministry while in Texas in 1998 to 2001, and has taught in various churches in Ireland, and several in Europe. Joseph has a heart to share with others the relationship, the friendship and the close relationship available to everyone that God offers through Jesus. Joseph believes in healing the sick reaching the lost. He believes in using the technology of this hour to spread the Gospel to the world. Part of his passion involves helping every single church possible reach their full potential through multimedia and has assisted, trained, equipped many churches in Europe to use the internet to facilitate the spread of the Gospel. He has taught in School of Ministry, and was a regular speaker at Christian Technology Conferences. He has traveled to help churches in Slovakia, and Poland and others. He knows that the internet is part of the tools available to reach the world for Christ. He was regularly on the streets of Ireland as part of his passion to share the Gospel with others. Look for him in the pulpit at Celebration House, or behind a camera, and on the streets outreaching in Mardi Gras – sharing the Love of God.
Celebration House is full of men and women that love God and have a heart to serve others as well. Most notable of these are…
