Pastor believed to be Elvis Presley by fans refutes claims

by Eno Adeogun

Tom Mennel, watched a YouTube clip of the preacher and told The Express that he is convinced the pastor isn't who he is claiming to be.

He said: "I have been an Elvis fan since I was six-years-old and now I am 61-years-old. To me, Mr Joyce is Elvis and I do hope one day he will stand up and say who he is."


However, Mr Joyce has confirmed he is not Mr Presley who died on August 16th 1977.

He explained: "Most of these folks know I am not Elvis but to them it doesn't matter. They are only so grateful that God is blessing them and reviewing their lives.


"Perhaps God is using Elvis' voice to minister to broken hearts and broken lives.

"If Elvis were alive, I would say to him, my friend and brother, we are of kindred spirits. We are one in Christ."
