Joseph Alexander Anthony IV (an East St. Louis native) is a young man of purpose, a tenacious worshiper, gifted communicator and emerging leader. He houses a strong love for God as a worshiper, and is on the horizon of recording his first project this month.
Joseph is the second oldest (and only son) of five gifted children born to Rev. Joseph & Cheryl Anthony III. Since a child, he has possessed a strong love for music and the things of God. At the age of three, he began holding revivals in his grandmother's home. He has been blessed to grow in ministry and travel domestically and abroad sharing his God given gifts of song and music.
Joseph began his public speaking ministry at the age of twelve, began leading worship in his teens, and still graduated at the top of his high school class. Joseph matriculated at Alabama A&M University, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology (Summa Cum Laude) and holds a Master’s of Science in Public Health (Epidemiology) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It was during his time as a graduate student that he made a covenant connection with Bishop Joby and Pastor Sheryl Brady and was ordained a Pastor by the River Fellowship International.
Joseph currently resides in Irving, Texas and serves as one of the worship leaders and music facilitators at The Potter's House of North Dallas, as well as a graphic designer for the church. He also heads a successful marketing business of his own, Jaylite Publications, LLC. To that end, Joseph has been the creative force behind a reputable corporate and celebrity clientele, and has shared the stage with some of the greatest names in Gospel music and ministry.
Joseph is preparing to record his first worship project on Saturday, March 29, 2014. Having faced an unexpected, serious health crisis in the winter of 2011, he emerged with an invigorated purpose to share the message of healing. Many of the songs that will be recorded have come from his own pen and personal experiences in the presence of God.
All are invited to be in place at The Verge Church | 3838 Texas 408 Spur | Dallas TX 75236 at 6:00 p.m. Doors will open at 5:15 p.m., and there is no entrance charge. For more information, you may visit http://www/janthony4.com
