We are SO blessed by all of the wonderful work that people have poured into planting this, His church. From persistent prayer support to financial support to tireless commitment of time and talent, we have seen many wondrous moments over the past few years.

The team has changed a bit… people do come and go. We have developed and grown closer together and we have sought answers to tough questions. We’ve grown eager at times and we’ve wondered when He will guide us into next steps. We’ve looked for organizations with which to connect and learn and grow.

This group of wonderful believers helped to choose the name, Joyful Life Church, from among many excellent (prayerful) brainstorming contributions. The group helped to articulate the Mission and Vision statements as well as our statement of faith.

We explored denominational coverage as well as financial investments from significant church partners such as the Evangelical Covenant Church and the Association of Related Churches.

In December of 2014, we followed God’s prompting to start along a more independent path by engaging the team at StartCHURCH. This is not without cost or effort, but is aligned with His calling on our lives and the launching of another of His churches… JOYFUL LIFE CHURCH.

We earnestly desire your continued prayer support and, if the Spirit leads you, your financial support.
