Joel Romelus was born to Haitian parents in Miami, Florida, where he encountered the Lord at a young age and made the decision to serve Him. However, he didn’t truly begin to grow as a disciple until he connected with Greenhouse Church in the fall of 2010 at Breakthrough Weekend. After he completed his bachelor’s degree in business management/international business, he moved to Gainesville to participate in a 10-month pastoral internship with Greenhouse Church. Joel currently serves as University Campus Director, and his passion is to see people of all ethnicities and backgrounds become ignited with a passion for God and a desire to shine His glory on the earth. He enjoys playing sports, writing poetry, communicating, and learning about different cultures.
