Joel Spiridigliozzi is the Lead Pastor of Heartland, A Church Connected in Mississauga. I have been attending the church for over 12 years and I absolutely love it. I had the great pleasure of interviewing Pastor Joel for my Journey To Success BlogTalkRadio show. Please be sure to listen to the interview and, if you live in the Mississauga area, visit our church.
Joel Spiridigliozzi was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1975 but with his family moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1980 where he would spend most of his school years. Joel graduated with a Bachelor of Theology degree from Summit Pacific College in Abbotsford, B.C. and has since also received his Master's degree from Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C. Joel's graduate studies were focused in Christian Studies majoring in Leadership and New Testament.
Joel has had the privilege of pastoring in Kelowna, British Columbia where he was also appointed as a chaplain on the multi-faith campus of the University of British Columbia. Joel has also had the opportunity to be an instructor at Summit Pacific College where he directed the first year student program titled Omega Challenge. As part of this program Joel led 40 to 50 members student teams around the world. He has travelled in places such us China, Russia, Zambia, Jamaica, Czech Republic, Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungry, Poland, Macau, and other nations. This has enabled him to have a positive influence around the world as it relates to many different humanitarian efforts.
In the last several years Joel has since moved into the province of Ontario and is presently the Lead Pastor of Heartland, A Church Connected located in the city of Mississauga. Heartland, A Church Connected is a multi-ethnic congregation that desires to be connected to God, each other, community and world. You can find them on-line at: http://www.connectingfaith.ca
