Dr. Joel Velasco

Dr. Joel Velasco has been a part of Grace Fellowship Church from the very beginning, even before it was constituted as a church. Joel was a leader in the early group of Filipino believers that met on Sunday evenings for 13 years before Grace Fellowship Church came to be in 2004, and he has continued to serve the members of the church for the past 20+ years. Joel has a passion for one-on-one discipleship that comes from his background with the Navigators and his own conversion and discipleship experience during his college days in the Philippines. Joel brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Grace Fellowship Church, both from his time serving in the church and from his job as a psychiatrist in Louisville and Southern Indiana. He is married to Evelyn, and they have two grown children, Eric and Ellen.
