Joyful Hearts Ministry

                    Psalms 100:2 Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with Singing

Meet Joe Carter, our newest member of the Joyful Hearts.  Joe is married to Retha, of almost 40 years.  They have two children and eight grand children. He is a Veteran of the United States Army, thank you for your service Joe.  He and Retha lived most of their married life in Texas, moved to Alabama in 2007.  They attend Life Church in Huntsville and own a Janitorial Company.  

He started singing at a very early age, being born into a musical family, he started singing harmony and picking out parts.  At the age of 4, God was moving him to play the Piano, at the age of 6 he was the pianist at his Father's church.  Joe has sang with several Quartets in the past and has been honored to sing to large crowds and small crowds but it does not matter the size of the crowd or what venue he is at as long as the name of Jesus Christ is lifted up then he has done what he was called to do.  His prayer for this new season with the Joyful Hearts  is that if he can stand in the gap for one soul or that something he may say would lead a soul to Christ then like Paul of old, he fought a good fight and kept the Faith.  Welcome Joe and                                               Retha we are honored to have you guys with us.
