Pastor Joy comes to us from the Presbyterian
tradition and for the past eight years has been the pastor of
the (Presbyterian) Church of the Apostles in Burnsville.
Joy is a great preacher with a gift for pastoral care. She
has experience leading multiple churches through a variety
of difficult situations and transitions. Joy is dedicated to
proclaiming the social justice mission of the church and is excited to come to a community that seeks to right the wrongs done to the Earth, and to proclaim Christ’s message of justice for the poor and oppressed.
In her personal life, Joy is a runner and dog lover. Her husband, Chuck is a Dean at Minneapolis Community
Technical College. They have a daughter, Katie who will enter the PhD program for
Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, and a son, Hunter, who will
graduate from Evergreen College in Washington this June with a degree in Creative
Writing and Media. You will find a message from Pastor Joy in the June newsletter.
