God anointed Pastor Kinlow to own and operate many business ventures. With no formal degree, he was a brilliant, formidable, and well-respected businessman in the state of Wisconsin. In 1965, he opened Kinlow Laundry & Dry Cleaning and operated that business until 1974. At that time, he decided to open Kinlow Real Estate Investments; successfully owning more than 35 properties in the Milwaukee area.
In 1981, Pastor Kinlow began a nine-year process of fulfilling requirements to building his own television station from the ground up. His persistence and hard work paid off. In 1990, the doors of WJJA TV-49 were opened. However, his ultimate dream was to bring 24-hour gospel music to Milwaukee. In May of 1995, he purchased WGLB AM 1560 and WGLB FM 100.01. He changed the format to all gospel music in August 1996 for AM 1560, and successfully established other media ventures in the south. Joel was also the proprietor of Children’s Trinity Daycare and Dollar J Store; and WGLB Records in Milwaukee, WI.
Pastor Joel Kinlow transitioned on June 7, 2016 and his legacy will forever live on!
