In May of 2014, the Rev. David Hansen came to Spirit of Joy! for a term call – for a period of three years – as our Redeveloper. After leading a renewal of our ministry and a rediscovery of our purpose together, the congregation of Spirit of Joy! has called Pastor David as our regularly called Pastor – to lead our ministry for the long term as we continue to live into the work that God has called us to.
Join us for worship on Sunday, January 8, as we celebrate this new stage of our ministry and install Pastor Hansen into his new role and responsibly in our community.
