Our Vision

Joy of It (JOI) looks to find the intersection between callings, passions, and spheres of influence. Those places where real connection and conversation happen. The result is a group of churches, non-profits, and individuals gathering and partnering together to accomplish more than what could be done on their own.

That’s what JOI is all about.

We, the Christian community, are designed to work together. Just as one body has many parts, so it is with Christ (1 Cor 12:12).  We are His one body.  When we live this out, we break down the walls that divide.  We can then start to celebrate diversity, build community, learn from each other, and benefit from each other’s strengths while covering one another’s weaknesses.

Together we can do great things.

A few exciting projects that are happening include:

Partnering with Lifeway

to create space for women across our region to connect, build relationships and be equipped to make a difference in their churches and spheres of influence.  

Partnering with Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)  

to create unified messaging and build program awareness through social media. This investment supports FCA in creating connections with athletes, coaches, parents, churches, and schools.

Launching the Joy of It HUB

a Christian community calendar and great marketing arm for the activity of Christ here in Portland.

Testing a city-wide Ambassador Program

to find places of intersection within the Christian community, where there is room to collaborate so that more can be accomplished together.

Expanding our Friendzy Program

from a city-wide event, to a beautifully packaged curriculum for schools and churches. When girls learn God’s design for friendship, they learn it for life.
