John Pence

Joe Boone joined AiG in September 2006 as the Director of Advancement. He previously was president and part-owner of a fire truck manufacturing business, having built over 1,000 fire fighting vehicles for many different agencies. Joe also spent time serving as a volunteer fireman with his local fire department. Prior to his involvement in the fire fighting industry, Joe practiced as a licensed CPA and manager with a large CPA firm in Indianapolis.

Joe became a supporter of AiG after hearing Ken Ham speak in 1996 - soon after his late wife's diagnosis with a brain tumor. Formerly a widower raising two children, Joe credits AiG with helping him and his children have a biblical understanding of why there is death and suffering in the world.
