VOLUNTEER PASTOR FOR CONGREGATIONAL CARE- JOY ERICKSON
Joy loves learning, which is why she studied at Luther Seminary and received her MDiv degree in 2015 while retired. She feels called to care for our community and visits those who are hospitalized or homebound. Joy also leads the Care Team of our congregation’s volunteers who connect and walk with our church family through the tough times that happen in life, such as sickness, and other life issues.
Joy also has a passion for spiritual growth and helping others grow in their relationship with God. She is a 2014 graduate of North Park Theological Seminary’s Spiritual Director’s training program and serves as a spiritual director.
Family and friends are important to Joy and she especially loves spending time with her five young and very active grandchildren. Joy moved downtown four years ago and enjoys being close to both the river and church.
