creating spaces for real

We believe that relationships are the plan and platform for Jesus to get His message of love, grace and forgiveness to people. Here at Joy of It, we partner with churches, nonprofits, and individuals to create spaces for real relationships to flourish.

Real people. Real conversations. Real life. Every week, we start conversations centered on the truth of God’s Word — conversations for you to continue in the places and spaces you inhabit. Find new posts on our blog every week.

“Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike. I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God’s ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.” (Ephesians 6:19-20)

Synergistic Projects, Events, Activity

Joy of It looks for projects where we can invest our time, talents and resources to help support the over all growth of existing activity.  We partner with churches, nonprofits and individuals, combining our strengths with their efforts, so we can accomplish more together. Connect with us to see how we can join forces with you.

“In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:21-22)
