Our Vision

Joy of It is a non-profit that exists to unite women, individuals and the community of Christ to be built up on the truth of God’s Word so truth can be lived out together — for the joy of it!

Our vision is to foster unity and growth in the Christian community, here in Portland and across the country. We do this through conversation (blog and podcast), connection (JOI HUB and marketing support), and collaboration (partnerships with local churches and organizations).

Joy of It was founded in 2014 by Joy Roberts, Laurie Sheffield, and Julie Widman and is a board-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Partner with us as we partner with the church

With the generous support of people like you, we’re able to produce our blog, grow the Joy of It HUB, and invest in collaborative efforts with the local churches and organizations. All donations are fully tax deductible.
