Joy was raised in Southern Illinois near the St. Louis Metropolitan area until she went to Morningside College in Sioux City, IA where she majored in Music Education. After raising two children and various odd jobs over the years, she felt called to ministry in the Presbyterian USA Church. She attended Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis where she was living and graduated in May, 2016. After graduating, she did a year long residency program at a senior living facility for her Clinical Pastoral Education experience. There, she did chaplaincy, led Bible Studies and an Evening Hymn Sing-a-Long for residents. She is excited about moving to Idaho and leading the 1st Presbyterian Church of Soda Springs. She truly feels that God has called her to minister to the smaller church where God can do big things. She can’t wait to get to know the people of Soda Springs and share her gifts and talents with them.
