"Hebraic Insights - Messages exploring the Hebrew roots of Christianity"
Joe Brusherd’s career included roles as CPA, international consultant, and vice-president in multiple companies. But one day in 1977, Joe Brusherd fell to his knees and said “Jesus Christ, you are real! I need to learn more about you.” That was, is, and always will be his goal in life.
Since then he attended every Bible study possible, studied in several Bible colleges, and taught Sunday school classes in all churches of which he was a member. Joe led numerous men’s ministries and Bible studies and developed (1) an in-depth survey of the Old Testament (his favorite topic), (2) outlines of parashot (weekly Torah studies), and (3) a course curriculum called “Our Hebraic Roots,” which became the introductory course in the yeshiva (school) in the messianic fellowship.
Although Joe was born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit in the Catholic Church, he has ministered in many distinctly different denominations: Assemblies of God, Assemblies of the First Born (as a licensed minister), Baptist, Filipino, FourSquare, and more recently, in messianic fellowships. He started and led men’s ministries in three distinctly different denominations: Assemblies of God, Filipino Assemblies of the First Born, and a messianic fellowship. A multidenominational background provides Joe with unique perspectives and insights.
Joe started his career as a CPA and MBA. He traveled worldwide as an international consultant. Before retiring, Joe served as vice president of operations and chief financial officer in a variety of industries. He encourages everyone he meets to grow professionally, personally, and most of all, spiritually. He’s a missionary and evangelist at heart.
As president of Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International in California and Belgium, Joe lead large monthly dinner meetings and a continuous schedule of weekly breakfast or lunch meetings worldwide. He has listened to hundreds of brothers from California Belgium, Honduras, and the Philippines share their testimonies.
His first book, Biblical Marriage, includes observations, testimonies, and teachings gleaned from personal experiences. Initial inspiration came from a teaching on the wedding supper of the Lamb. Initial distribution of the marriage book has been to family and friends thus far. However, family and friends comprise a large group since Joe and Peggy recently celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary, with six children, five of their spouses, and fourteen grandchildren, all of whom know, love, and serve the Lord.
