Jessica is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University and received her ordination in 2016. She is currently attending Northeastern Seminary, studying theology and justice.  She has worked with families, youth/children, and at-risk populations in social services, nonprofits, and in the church.  She also has experience with domestic violence and sexual assault.

Let’s Laugh with Joy M Archer

Joy was born in St. Petersburg, Florida however she is forever grateful her parents moved to Michigan when she was only four months old (she would never be able to take the heat). Joy genuinely enjoys the changing seasons Michigan has to offer. Joy graduated from Baker College with a bachelor’s degree in health service administration. She was employed in the medical field for over thirty years, also worked for Baker College as an adjunct faculty instructor in the Professional Office Billing and Medical Assisting Programs for nineteen years. Joy became a member of Toastmasters International and excelled through the programs, during the past seven years. In addition to her communication skills, she held several local club offices and district leadership positions. Joy has been accredited from Toastmasters International with the credentials of ACG (Advanced Communicator Gold) and ALB (Advanced Leadership Bronze). Joy found her “comfort zone” of speaking with humor and storytelling. Her own life’s experiences have given her the material just when she needed it. God has gifted Joy with the ability to make friends and talk to anyone, there is always a story to listen to or to share. Joy is the mother of four grown children and nine grandchildren. Her husband John passed away in 2009, Joy finds sharing some of their struggles during his illness has helped her. There were many humorous experiences that made life easier. Today she lives alone with her 93-pound puppy Jake. He is a great companion.

“Attending the retreat at Winding Creek was a boost to my faith as I listened to our speaker take us through God’s word from Adam to Jesus. Besides the excellent Bible study, there was the making of new friends and the reminder that there are many Christians who have needs and joys beyond my own. The delicious meals and activities increased the retreat experience.”
