PASTOR JOYCE WEBB
I have been married to my husband Rich for 40 years. We have two adult children - a daughter Jessica, who lives with her family in Johnston and a son Alex, who lives in Waukee. I also have three grandchildren, who bring me much joy. Life is busy, but I enjoy reading and spending as much time as I can with family.
I grew up in Sioux City, where my parents still live. I am a University of Iowa graduate, which makes me a Hawkeye. I'm a second career pastor, having spent many years in mortgage finance. First, at Allied Group Mortgage and then for Nationwide Advantage Mortgage. I received a Master of Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City in 2011 and was ordained as an Elder in the UMC in 2015.
As the pastor of CRUMC for the last 6 years, I'm involved in most of the church's ministries. I'm most excited to support others as they answer the "burning bushes" God has put on their hearts. I'm also involved in the CR-B Food Pantry, which is supported by the churches in Coon Rapids and Bayard.
Ministries outside the local church include two non-profits located in Des Moines. Children and Family Urban Movement (CFUM), and Family Promise (a ministry that helps homeless families with children). I served multiple terms as a board member in each. Both do great work in the community.
