EP9 -  You Are Not Your Own w/ Joe Melendrez

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights" and is inspired by the heroic life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together.

Joe Melendrez is one of America's most energetic and electrifying Catholic keynote speaker, performer, MC and event/retreat leader. He has released four major Catholic hip-hop albums and travels the country and world sharing the Gospel with young people everywhere. Joe is the founder and CEO of God Swagg Apparel and the host of the Mission Driven Podcast. He holds a BA in Religious Studies from the University of Dayton and lives in the Simi Valley, CA area with his lovely wife and two young children.

In our conversation we touched on various powerful topics, such as Joe's profound encounter experience with the Lord at age 15, how he came to grow in Faith and embrace his vocation and mission as a son of God, performer, and husband/father, and the mindsets and habits he uses on a daily basis to stay productive, energized and close to the Lord. Joe's charisma and passion for the Lord is truly unique and special, our conversation is going to inspire and motivate you!
