My Story

My name is Joel, and I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Elizabeth. My parents are André and Angèle Regnier, the founders of Catholic Christian Outreach, so I guess you could say I am carrying on the family business.

There is a big difference between knowing about God and actually knowing Him in a personal way. Growing up I knew a lot about God, and enjoyed going to Church with my family. I went on a retreat in middle school and had a powerful experience of God’s love and presence in my life. That weekend, I made a decision to follow the Lord with my whole life. Since then I have continued to grow in my personal relationship with Jesus and desire for others to encounter the Lord in their lives.

I am currently a campus missionary at Carleton University in Ottawa. As the only male missionary on campus, I lead the men’s ministry. I love this work and I am committed to sharing the Gospel and intentionally accompanying students to greater maturity in Christ.


Pray for all the people I will encounter, that they will come to know Jesus in a personal way!
