Pastor Joseph and his wife Elena and their daughter Bella  
Pastor Perricellia comes to Wisconsin from the Iowa/Missouri Conference where he has pastored for nearly six years. He received his undergraduate degree from Southern Adventist University, with a BA in Theology, and a minor in Practical Religion. 


Joseph gave his heart to Jesus for the first time at an Amway Convention. When he told his wife, Elena, about his conversion he discovered that she too had recently given her heart to Jesus while watching a TV evangelist.  “What are we going to do about this?” asked Elena. “Well, all I know is that we’re supposed to go to church,” replied Joseph. Receiving an invitation in the mail to attend evangelistic meetings, they decided to attend. “I asked a lot of questions,” said Joseph. “and was very impressed that the pastor never told me what he thought. He always turned to the Bible for an answer.” In April, 1993, Joseph and Elena were baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist church.


“My passion is to seek and save the lost by introducing them to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” said Joseph. “He has driven me to ever grow and develop into a greater instrument in the Master’s hands. Christ has been able to take me from a heathen non-believer to servant-leader. Praise His Holy Name! My focus now is on every aspect of evangelism, personal and public. I love evangelism.”


Joseph and Elena have one daughter, Bella. They enjoy spending time together as a family, especially hiking in the woods and enjoying God’s creation. Joseph also enjoys fishing and motorcycle riding.
