Doc Joseph Anderson-BIO
From an early age Joseph Anderson had an abusive childhood. By the time
he was eight years old, he had seen his mother with many men, of whom she
married three, the last husband being the most abusive. At thirteen, he ran
away from home looking for a better home and life to live but found, only
trouble. Not long after hitting the streets of Jacksonville, Florida he began to
drink, take drugs and use girls.
By the time he was sixteen he was living on the streets full time. For a
decade he wondered aimlessly. He recalls taking a hit of his friends purple
microdot LSD and tripping all night long. Joseph saw an uninterrupted
stream of pictures and shapes with a beautiful, kaleidoscopic play of colors
streaming around the room, but didn’t like it. It was too much. He felt dirty,
in need of a shower, and felt bad about the general direction of his life. After
several hours, the trip faded away and he finally passed out.
When Joseph revived his body the next morning, he squinted and pulled
back the curtains. The world was covered in ice from the storm; there wasn’t
a cloud in the sky and the morning sun reflected off everything. It hurt his
eyes but it was a beautiful sight. He opened the window to get some air. It
was cold and crisp and it felt good as the freshness filled his lungs. A new
day had dawned.
After seventeen years of drug and self-afflicted abuse Joseph cried out to
Jesus Christ to ask him, if he was real then to come down from heaven and
set him free. He did. A few weeks later Joseph attended a church service and
it was on that day that God revealed his similitude to him. Joseph saw and
felt the glory of God for a whole day. As he prayed, he heard and felt
currents of power rip through his body. He was experiencing something
strange; he didn’t know what was happening. He could not open his eyes
and it felt as if he was floating. The energy felt glorious. Joseph wanted to
stay in that place for eternity. Time Stopped Still. He felt mental illness;
fear, torment, pain, confusion, demons, and all darkness leave his body.
After a long while, the finger of God lifted enough for him to function.
Joseph felt a sense of awe and pureness. He stood in the entrance of the
church in awe. The atmosphere around him was more beautiful than it had
ever looked or smelled before. He felt peace.
Since that day Joseph has ministered on the streets from where he grew up.
He was given a free scholarship and graduated from the Jacksonville
Theological Seminary with a 4.0 grade point average and a bachelor’s
degree in education and masters in psychology and a doctorate in Theology.
On arriving to Los Angeles, Joseph spent time writing his book at a local
coffee shop beside Gower Studios. A Hollywood director named Thaddeus
saw him one day and asked him what he was writing about. Joseph
described to him a scene from the book. There was a silence in the coffee
shop, as all the customers were captivated by his story. The director sent
Joseph to a school run by Ivan Markota, the most famous acting coach in
Hollywood. When Ivan found out that he was a preacher he nicknamed
Joseph, Doc Hollywood and it stuck.
