Joseph Martin was born in Armenia. After giving his life to the Lord, he moved to the United States and served as a church keyboard player and music minister. Eventually, the Lord called Joseph out of the congregation where he was serving. As he obeyed, he received a vision for the ministry, a burden for the perfection of the saints and salvation of lost souls, and his calling as an evangelist-teacher and musician. Joseph and his wife, Shushana, live in Los Angeles, California, with their five-year-old son, Hike, and are expecting their second child in May 2012.
