Joel Wiggins

Joel Wiggins Personal Testimony - March 25, 2020

When asked as a young boy what he wanted to be when he grew up, Joel simply responded “a man.” What he did not know was that simple desire would lead him to a life of equipping men to lead in all aspects of life: home, health, finances, business, community and relationships.

Honorably called The Kingmaker, Joel’s mission is to reach the hearts of men by appointing and empowering them with the tools and resources necessary to walk in their visions. Called to release the “king inside”, Joel is the founder and CEO of The mPowerdigm Group and Kingmaker Coaching, organizations that develop and disciple entrepreneurs, business, ministry and community leaders around the globe.

An accomplished entrepreneur, Joel has experienced tremendous success in several industries including automotive, custom apparel and real estate. He currently holds consultative, shareholder and investor roles with numerous businesses nationwide.

Inspired “girldad”, Joel resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with his wife, Katrina, and daughters, Christina and Reagan.
