Originally from Quebec, Pastor Joël grew up in a Christian home and professed his faith around the age of 4. He spent his youth involved in his local church, where he began teaching “Sunday School” from the age of 12 until he was 18. He also traveled as a Southern Gospel soloist at Christian events during that same time. In 1999, he recorded a debut album called “Let Him be your Refuge” which enabled him to travel in Canada and the United States for four and a half years. Pastor Joël has ministered in North America, the West Indies, Europe, Africa and in Australia.

In 2003, he was invited to be a guest on « Lifeline », produced at that time by the Miracle Channel based out of Lethbridge, Alberta. Immediately after the recording of this first program, he and his family were invited to join that national media team. The « Lifeline » program was aired on the Miracle Channel (Canada), Crossroads TV (Canada), Vision TV (Canada), NRB Channel (United States) and the Australian Christian Channel (Australia).

It was in September of 2003 that the Spinks family left Quebec to relocate to Alberta. For four years, Pastor Joël served as an associate pastor at the Miracle Channel church. He also taught leadership classes at the Miracle Channel School of TV Ministry. In addition, he hosted the bilingual « Seeds of Faith » daily devotional as well as contributed to the « Lifeline » television program, until his return to eastern Canada in September of 2007. Pastor Joël then appeared on « From the River » (broadcasted on the Miracle Channel, CTS, Vision TV and Cornerstone TV – USA). Following some ministerial trips in the Canadian Arctic, he then returned with his family to Quebec to establish Victory Church in September of 2008. It was in Quebec, at « Ministère Enseignemoi », that he resumed his television ministry, hosting « Vie de Foi » (Life of Faith) from 2015-2020. Since 2020, he currently hosts the bi-weekly « LIVE de Guérison » (Healing LIVE broadcast), as well as « Richement Bénis » (Richly Blessed French Broadcast), and the daily [Monday Friday] « Parole de Foi » (Word of Faith) broadcasting on EVTV on « Canal Plus International » as well as the English version « The Joël Spinks Faith Broadcast », soon to be aired on Victory Channel Canada. All programs are produced by Victory Church, aka, Joël Spinks Ministries.
