Presenter Bio

Reverend Doctor George Joseph “Joe” Mitchell humbly served as Co-Pastor of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church alongside his father, where he is affectionately known as “Pastor Joe” and in 2017 he succeeded his father as Senior Pastor of New Hope.

He was part of a Disaster Relief Missionary Team rebuilding homes in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and a member of the American Baptist Men Disaster Relief Team that assisted with rebuilding efforts in New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. His service also includes participation on several local committees and boards such as the Board of Trustees for DeKalb Public Library and the DeKalb County Community Foundation Board of Directors. He has worked diligently in local communities on issues of diversity, food security, housing, and equal distribution of government resources.

A 2015 recipient of the Martin Luther King, Jr. award given by Northern Illinois University and a proud member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Reverend Doctor Mitchell also enjoys being an adjunct instructor in the Center for Black Studies at NIU and a guest contributor for “My Perspective” on WNIU/WNIJ.

He earned a Bachelor’s of Arts, in Business Management from Judson University, a Master of Divinity from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctorate in Ministry from the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University. Most of all he wants to be known as a humble servant of Jesus Christ, who dedicates himself to empowering others, advocating for justice, and advancing the Ministry of God.
