About Us


Joy Ministries Evangelistic Association, Inc. is a non-profit
501 (c) 3 whose mission is to minister salvation and restoration to
God's people. Established in 1989 by Evangelist Danette J.
Crawford, Joy Ministries seeks to share the gospel message both
nationally and internationally through television, conferences,
seminars and creative outreach methods. We believe our mission
field starts in our own backyard and extends to the nations.

The Word of God clearly shows us God's heart for the poor and
needy, the fatherless children and the widows. Joy Ministries helps
meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of these people through our various outreaches.  We believe that investing
in the lives of the poor and fatherless, through education and character development, we will help them break free from the
cycle of poverty.
