Dr. Joseph M Jennings grew up in the black ghetto of South Bend, Indiana, the oldest son of thirteen kids. Raised to live a lifestyle of gang and drug-related violence, he stopped at nothing in his attempt to attain the material success he thought was the “American Dream.
As a former gang leader, this resulted in him being burned, stabbed, and shot thirteen times, yet still unfulfilled and feeling empty. It wasnt until Dr. Jennings was supernaturally called by God to repent of his gangster lifestyle and accept salvation that he knew of God’s incredible power and calling for his life.
Dr. Jennings has been featured on shows such as: Ricki Lake Show, The Jenny Jones Show and an FBI/CIA Gang Prevention program for the C-Span network. He has also served as a “National Youth Advocate” on President George W. Bush’s Advisory Council on the prevention of AIDS/HIV in America. Dr. Jennings has written several books and has recorded several CDs.
These book titles include: “Prisoner of The American Dream” “Black Man White Man: A Tale of Two Friends” Bad Boy Turned Good”.
Dr. Jenning’s no nonsense keep it real approach strikes a chord with every audience that he speaks to. He travels worldwide speaking to schools, conferences, and ministries encouraging today’s youth that there are choices and that they can achieve anything.
