If you caught “The Jesus Strand: A Search for DNA” on the History Channel Sunday night, you might have seen a familiar face.
Pastor Joe Basile of Encounter Road Church in Clovis and Visalia joined up with a geneticist to hunt for the DNA of Jesus. (Watch the special here.)
FresYes talked with Basile a couple of years ago when he was just starting Encounter. Known for his tattoos and for being a sharp dresser, Basile was happy to chat about how his personal style influences his teachings.
Check out the original article by former FresYes contributor Kendra Gilbert here, and watch her interview with Pastor Joe Basile below.
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
