In 1990, Joan joined Cru staff. In 2007, though she felt like a big chicken, Joan knew that she wanted to step out in faith and begin a neighborhood Bible study group. With her palms sweating, she handed out flyers and prayed. Three women came, including herself and her co-leader. God showed up then and He shows up now…with quite a few more than three.
It is more than increased numbers for which she is grateful - it is that her neighbors know there is a safe place to come with their questions about God. She desires to provide an environment where women can begin or deepen their walk with Christ through studying God’s Word, build friendships with one another, and influence their families for Christ. Joan is a recent widow and mother to three boys and a girl.
