Our Pastor

Joseph Cardamone has been active in the ministry since graduating from high school in 1979.

Joseph came to faith in Christ as a boy through the ministry of his mother and a small independent Bible church in Georgetown, CT. He and his late wife Wendy, of 26 years, had five children together.

He received his Bachelor of Arts from Florida Bible College in Biblical Education and Pastoral Ministries, with a minor in New Testament Greek, in 1984. He went on to receive a Masters in Divinity degree from Capital Bible Seminary in 1989.

He has served in pastoral ministry in California, Connecticut, Texas, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. He also served on fulltime staff with e3partners in Plano, TX, where he was privileged to present the gospel through church mobilization in El Salvador, Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay, Romania, Tanzania, and Turkey.

Beginning his Doctorate of Ministry studies at Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, CA, Joseph concluded his degree in expository communication with Faith Seminary in Tacoma, WA, in 2005. His dissertation is entitled Moving Your Church into Global Ministry.

Joseph is also a co-founder and board member of Global Church Ministries, an international short-term mission agency that assists churches in making disciples of all the nations (www.globalchurchministries.us). GCM has made available a condensed version of his dissertation, entitled Global Impact! A Biblical Missional Approach, as well as an individual and team devotional guide, entitled, Moving Out! 7 Days in the Great Commission.
