  • REV. JOYE PERRY

    Associate Pastor

    Joye is a licensed local pastor in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist Church. In July of 2010, she and her husband, Roger were appointed to serve as pastors to the Christ United Methodist Church congregation in East Moline. In 2013, Joye was also appointed to serve part time at Silvis United Methodist Church located at 1301 2nd Ave., Silvis, Ill. In 2002, Joye felt a call to pastoral ministry. She had already been in ministry with her husband as the “pastor’s wife” since 1985, and she had served in children and youth ministry from 1981-1985 in other United Methodist Churches. After much prayer, Joye began the necessary steps to become licensed as a local pastor. She has served on staff at Geneseo First UMC, Marion Aldersgate UMC, Gifford UMC, and Ludlow UMC. Joye has been privileged to be the mother of two sons, Samuel and Levi. They are both now graduated from high school and pursuing their own dreams and careers as young adults. Joye, and her husband, Roger were also the parents of their daughter, Hope Lynn, who very soon after her arrival in this world in 1991, left to be in heaven with Jesus. In ministry, Joye enjoys teaching Bible Study classes, preaching, and pastoral care. She has also been privileged to be a speaker/ teacher at several Christian women’s retreats throughout the years. In her “free” time, her favorite activities include a good long hike in a state or national park, and curling up in front of a fire place with a “who done it?” mystery novel. Rev. Perry can be reached at (309)755-2508 or by email perry.joywithane@gmail.com.
