ABOUT JOE AND RITA'S
Joe Allbright, author of
"Liberating the Bruised", has been in the
preaching and counseling ministry since 1976. During the years of his
ministry, hundreds of troubled and hurting individuals have been guided
to a life of victory and peace. His counseling ministry has always been
available to his counselees at no charge. Being an ordained minister, Joe
has pastored several
churches over a period of eight years before feeling led by the Lord to
devote his time completely to the counseling ministry. Through the
years, Dr. Allbright has continued preaching in various churches by
Dr. Allbright seeks to multiply his ministry by
equipping others for counseling. The teachings presented in his
are scriptural based and proven to be effective by the results of his
personal counseling experience, as are the two books offered through Joe
and his wife Rita's ministry.
DR. JOE ALLBRIGHT'S PERSONAL BACKGROUND
Dr. Allbright knows first-hand the pain of being
bruised by circumstances, by people, and by his own wrong choices. More
importantly he has experienced the joy of being liberated by God's grace
and power through the application of the same biblical principles he
teaches in his seminars.
His childhood was characterized by poverty, rejection, turmoil,
insecurity, anger, bitterness, fear, hatred, grief and disappointment as
he experienced the death of his sharecropper father, the rejection of
his mother who gave him away, the death of his foster father and the lack of attention from
his foster mother who worked
as a live-in nurse. Adult responsibilities were prematurely thrust
upon him when at age 15 he dropped out of school to get a job to support
himself and his critically-ill foster mother. Thus began an 18-year futile quest for happiness
through financial success, alcoholism and fleeing the call of God.
At age 33, with the support of his faithful and loving wife, Rita, Dr. Allbright turned his life over to the Lord
His struggle to overcome the hurts of his past led
him through the healing process from God's word that he has shared with
countless counselees in his years of one-on-one ministry. His own
complete liberation from bondage as well as the testimonies of the
hundreds of hurting-to-healed individuals he has helped can attest to
the authenticity of his teachings.

DR. JOE AND RITA, authors of
"More Tools for Liberating the
Bruised", have been married since October 11, 1957
and are extremely grateful to the Lord for their three children, their
spouses, five grandchildren and two great-grandsons who are so very precious to them.
Joe and Rita surrendered to serve the Lord together in 1969. As
they look back over the years, they still stand amazed at how He caused
their pathways to meet---putting two people together who are so opposite
from one another in personalities, abilities and talents. But He
knew how to bring balance not only to their marriage, but to His
ministry through them as well. How grateful they are for His unconditional love
and readiness to forgive when they failed and strayed! After
writing "Liberating the Bruised" in 1997, in 2010, together they
obediently sought His wisdom while writing additional helps through
"More Tools for Liberating the Bruised". Having completed this
God-inspired work brings much joy to their hearts in knowing that even
after they have moved into their heavenly home, the books can continue
to share God's wondrous truths with individuals as well as ministers, missionaries, and
counselors who can also lead souls to salvation and lead Satan's captives to
freedom through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rita is also a published author of
"Such As I Have, Give I Thee" which is out of print but plans are to
publish it in the future. Rita has dedicated her life to the task,
in a volunteer capacity, of serving full-time and supporting the Joe E. Allbright Evangelistic Assoc., Inc..
