After serving our church as a volunteer in many ways for several years, Joanna joined our church staff in May 2013. Joanna works with our church and community, scheduling events on our church calendar. She also communicates with our facilities and media teams to help make event setup runs smoothly.
Joanna is the homeschool mom of three beautiful girls, but she doesn't fit the typical homeschool stereotype. Her dream is to be a race car driver. She has the need for speed! Speaking of speed, Joanna won the local Subjammer Contest for Subway in 1991 by making the fastest made sandwich. When Joanna slows down, she enjoys a good, romantic movie. Sense and Sensibility is her all-time favorite.
Currently, Joanna's favorite Bible verse is Psalm 40:1-3: "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined to me, and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. And he put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.” This is exactly what God has done for her. Joanna's life was a wreck, and she cried out. Joanna loves that we have a God that hears us and gives us a firm foundation. Now she sings His praises so that others can see and know what a wonderful God we have.
