Joe Violi

Joe serves as a campus minister at PSU with The Navigators and have attended SCEFC since 2012. His first exposure to the Christian faith came as a child.  His parents were active in a Catholic and he was taught respect for God, Bible and prayer.  Joe credits his upbringing and values instilled by his parents for preparing him for a first real encounter  with the gospel in college as he was invited to a Bible study and began to read and study the Bible.  As he read the Bible and his Bible study leaders helped him understand different pieces of the gospel puzzle that were floating around in his head.  Soon after, he understood and fully embraced the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Joe has also received a "Certificate of Christian Ministry" from the Evangelical Free Church in 2013.
