Welcome to Joyful! We are a group of young adults seeking God's love and grace. We are learning that no matter how deep our brokenness is, God's grace is deeper still. So join us, no matter who you are or what you have been through – be a part of community, and let us discover more of God!
WE'RE BACK IN-PERSON!

WHO WE ARE
We, in the Joyful English Ministry, believe that only upon receiving grace from God, our lives will be free from all sin and fear. Our ministry started when a group of young adults sought a community that wanted to grow more in the word. We come from various backgrounds, but over time we got closer with each other and with our faith. As a young ministry in the Bay Area, our mission is to be a place for the broken, the lost, and the abandoned who desire to learn about the love of Christ and be a part of a family. The Bible summarized: "Love the LORD your God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength,' and 'Love your neighbor as yourself." We are a family
