About Papa Joe Bradford

Born in a small country town west of Nashville, Joe Bradford grew up in great poverty along with his grandmother, mother and sister. He rarely heard from his father. As the years passed, Joe's life became increasingly turbulent - experiencing the entrapment of poverty, nearly dying from snakebite, facing time in prison for computer hacking and fighting a deadly kidney disease, but it was from these very struggles that he grew a heart for the poor and oppressed.

In the nineteen years we have been bringing in outside speakers for our event I would have to say that Papa Joe ranks near the top. We’ve heard nothing but positive comments from many of the sell out crowd who attended. Papa Joe will hold a special place in our memories of the Steak Out in years to come. Thank you for facilitating his appearance!

Papa Joe speaking to our students was a landmark moment. He was dynamic and engaging, bringing a smile to every face, and inspiration to every heart. Students normally disinterested by school planned events were fighting over the mic to ask him questions.

Daniel Jackson - Lancaster Christian Academy

Papa Joe is not just traveling around speaking about his life or his movie but he lives it by being a walking testimony of the unconditional love of our heavenly Father. Thank you, Papa Joe, for blessing us with your testimony.

Stephanie Curtis - Under His Wings, Inc.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to speak to any group of students. Whether they are at risk or not, every student (and adult!) can be inspired by Joe's message of redemptive, unconditional love.
