Starve Me to Life - Taking Jesus Christ to the streets.


Joshua Davis, more commonly known as "Smiley," is a full-time street evangelist.

Joshua was raised in Troy, Alabama by two godly parents where he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of five. While growing up, Joshua's peers were quick to notice his positive attitude, cheerful spirit and the constant smile upon his face.  It was no wonder that Joshua would eventually acquire the nickname, "Smiley."

Smiley has served in a vast array of ministry capacities. These various opportunities include being on staff with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in South Metro/Inner City, Atlanta, GA; Chaplain for Carson-Newman College Athletics, Jefferson City, TN; Appalachian Outreach, Jefferson City, TN; Leadership Team for Youth, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Jefferson City, TN; Student Associate Pastor, Wallace Memorial Baptist Church, Knoxville, TN; His Passion Ministries, Knoxville, TN; Football Team Chaplain for Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL; and, other leadership positions for different ministries and organizations. While in college, Smiley was on the leadership teams for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Campus Crusade for Christ and Baptist Student Ministries.

Smiley works regularly with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He serves as a Huddle Leader (Camp Staff) at numerous FCA Camps every summer and speaks at many FCA Huddles throughout the year. Smiley teaches the evangelism Break-Out sessions for a few FCA summer camps. He also occasionally speaks at First Priority meetings and school assemblies.

Smiley regularly speaks at churches, revivals, camps and other miscellaneous events across the eastern United States. Even though formal speaking is a part of Starve Me to Life, it is only a small fraction. A majority of this ministry is pure, passionate evangelism. The burden of this ministry is to see 6 billion people come to know Jesus Christ as their personal, Lord and Savior. In order to see this happen, Smiley walks the streets engaging people and actively sharing the Gospel. He frequents malls, shopping centers and public events in order to share the hope of Jesus Christ.
