Joe Perozich is the Founding Apostle of Restoration Church International (formerly Morgantown Faith Center) and has served in ministry since its beginning in 1998. He and Pastor Rena Perozich were married in 1977 and have two adult daughters. The Perozichs came under apostolic covering of Drs. John and Rebecca Polis at the Light of Life World Outreach Center (now Faith Church International) in Fairmont, WV in 1987 and began a twelve-year journey from attenders, to members, and on to disciples – a walk that would lead them to birth a new ministry. In 1997, the couple led a local woman to the Lord. From that meeting, Morgantown Faith Center (now RCI) was born. Apostle Joe spent several years in dual roles as both a full-time businessman and pastor before being led to full time ministry in 2005. He was ordained through Revival Fellowship International of Beaufort, SC in 1999.
Apostle Joe conducts a flourishing men’s prison ministry and holds a monthly men’s meeting called Men of Honor. Through his men’s outreaches, Apostle Joe continues to help men in the Body of Christ grow to understand how to break the old, destructive choices that have kept them in bondage. In recent years, he has hosted a radio program entitled “Believe Right” and now a television ministry of the same title seen on several regional channels and the Internet several times weekly. RCI is the local church operation of the incorporation MFC Ministries for which Apostle Joe serves as President and senior leader. Recently, the media ministry of MFC Ministries has expanded to include an international radio broadcast reaching parts of India, China, and Russia as well as television broadcasts on many more stations regionally in the United States. He is also the author of one book entitled "The Saving of America".
