Mission to the World

Joel Swanson obtained a B.A. in Natural Science from Covenant College, a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech. As a registered professional engineer, Joel worked 12 years in Chattanooga, Tennessee, pushing against the world's brokenness in the realm of transportation systems, serving in his local church, and facilitating a classic literature book club. In 2012, God called him to Europe to help church planting teams start new churches, first in Kyiv, Ukraine two years, during which time he met and became engaged to Stephanie, a missionary serving in France. Joel and Stephanie currently live in Paris with their son, where they serve alongside a small French church that's supported 12 local church plants since it was planted 13 years ago. In August 2019 Joel became a Certified Bitcoin Professional, after having followed the nascent technology a number of years. Joel enjoys reading books, running, writing code and songs, making music, and down time with family and friends. He blogs at on money and creation, economics, and truth, in the light of God's Word.
