Joy believes all of the commands of God boil down to two things: loving God and loving one another. This love is best displayed through obedience to God’s leading in our lives. God’s work in the lives of God’s people is not a one-time event, but a lifelong journey and relationship forged through community with God and others. Joy is passionate about living out her identity as a child of God through love, presence, and compassion for others.
Originally from Pekin, IL, Joy is a recent graduate of Olivet Nazarene University with her Bachelor’s in Christian Education. She is currently continuing her education through a Master’s of Missional Multiplication, though when she’s not working on Masters’ work, she also enjoys drinking chai tea, reading novels, journaling, and playing piano or guitar.
