Pastor Joe Champion Motivates Men at Annual Diesel Event

International pastor and motivational speaker, Joe Champion, spoke at this year’s annual men’s Diesel conference at Christ Fellowship Church, Gardens Campus.

Pastors Joe and Lori Champion have a vision and heart to see people walking in their destiny. By connecting people to Christ, the church, and their call, they are seeing this life mission become a living reality.

In 2000, Pastors Joe and Lori packed up their three young boys and moved from Louisiana to Round Rock, Texas. The church started in the Round Rock Public library, but quickly outgrew capacity and the church moved to the Wingate hotel, then a retail space on Chisholm Trail.

He has a growing Church in Maputo and seeks volunteers to come join him. Many churches have been active since the late 1800’s in Mozambique. The larger well established churches such as Presbyterian, Seventh-Day Adventists and Baptists gained converts throughout the 20th century. Other small Protestant groups have grown around international peace movements and international agencies. UNESCO and OXFAM are worldwide development and relief agencies that provide prefabricated schools buildings, educational supplies and volunteer teachers.

Joe Champion’s church, which is growing at a rate of 20% a year also seeks to increase the number of schools and trained teachers in Maputo, Mozambique. His church has gained many new converts – especially among people under the age of 35. The Christian community is evenly divided between Roman Catholic and Protestants, but new converts seem to be drawn to the lively evangelical Protestant movement and Joe Champion’s Celebration Church.
