After receiving degrees from Wheaton College and Duke University, Joel Edward Goza joined the staff at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Houston’s 5th Ward. For 10 years, Joel focused on issues of faith, race, politics and urban research. He provided leadership in urban redevelopment, immigration and educational reform initiatives, developed the Healing the Brokenness Conference that brought Christian leaders together across racial, economic and denominational lines with leading scholars, and facilitated partnerships between the 5th Ward and leading research universities. Joel has also served as a Visiting Scholar on Race, Religion, and Politics for the Center for Faith and Culture at St. Thomas University and at Baylor University’s Truett Theological Seminary.

Joel also wrote America’s Unholy Ghosts: The Racist Roots of Our Faith and Politics which received a Starred Review from Publishers Weekly. Today, Joel continues to write and work from the 5th Ward. He is a Contributing Writer for The North Star and his work has been featured in The Houston Chronicle, and Salon. When not working, Joel spends his time pestering his wife Sarah, daughter Naomi, and son Samuel Roger.
