Pastor Joyce is relatively new to New London – having started her appointment here in July 2015. She is an ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church with an M.Div. from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois; and a BFA from Northern Illinois University. That BFA would help explain the years she worked as a graphic designer in the Milwaukee area. Being a lifelong Methodist would help explain why she finally answered God’s call to full-time ordained ministry.
