Joyce Hayter


I have enjoyed being able to serve our church family in this capacity. I’ve been married to my favorite person, Jon, for 14 years. We have four fantastic children, Taylar, Benjamen, Logan and Iann, which we also homeschool. When not being secretary, teacher or chauffeur I enjoy baking, cooking and spending time out in the yard.
