Rev. Joel Robert League, 71, died Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at his home in Louisville. He was a native of Florence, AL and was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War. Joel was the founding pastor of Living Waters Church just outside of Shelbyville. He also helped form the vision of Living Waters Christian School, which is now known as Cornerstone Christian Academy. One of his great loves was working with ministry groups for trips to Israel. He was the author of two books, Deliverance From Another Place and a devotional called Upon Further Review. He was known for his humor and loved to put smiles on people's faces. As a pastor he was known for his in-depth study and teaching of God's Word, but he was even better known for his love for God and his love for people.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Carol League of Louisville; his daughter, Delisa Riley (Stephen) of Shelbyville; his son, Jody League (Becky) of Shelbyville; and his grandchildren, Paul Riley (Haley), Daniel Riley (Parmela), Michael Riley, Jana Riley, Jessica League, Cristina League, and Elijah League.

A Celebration of Life will occur at 3:00 p.m. Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the Living Waters Church with Pastor Stephen Riley officiating. There will be a receiving line with reception from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at the church. Burial will be private.
