More About Joyce Thrasher

Joyce was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and is happy to be living in southern Alabama without snow.  Joyce’s husband retired from the Army in 2005.  Prior to his retirement, Joyce was active in ministry on Fort Rucker; leading Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC), volunteering at Vacation Bible School, teaching Sunday School, starting children’s church at Chapel of Wings and contributing to tremendous growth at Chapel of Wings through her ability to quickly connect with people and her keen insights about how to help people feel welcome and included.

Joyce has spoken at many women’s retreats and also as a keynote speaker at many other events, including on military bases; as well as speaking with her husband on Sunday morning at their church of over 2,000 people.  Joyce has shared speaking responsibilities at a women’s event with Ken Bevel, who was in the movies, FireProof and Courageous.  Joyce is funny and very “real”.  She connects to women where they are in life.  Through her church, Grace Place church in Enterprise, Alabama, she also started a ministry to women at local strip clubs; where she goes monthly to show God’s love to the women who work there.

Since her husband’s retirement, Joyce has used her same abilities to help add over 2,000 new members to Grace Place Church, where she serves God in a variety of ways.  She is the Director of Women’s Ministry, teaches ladies’ Bible studies, volunteers at the church’s food pantry/clothes closet and helps with many other ‘odds and ends’ around the church.  In addition to her hands-on service at church, Joyce reaches out to women, via her blog and website;

Joyce is married to Donny Thrasher, who is originally from Arkansas and currently serves as the Senior Pastor of Grace Place Church. They have three sons and one daughter-in-love.  Christopher and Meggie live in Atlanta, where Chris works for the Federal Aviation Administration and is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.  Zachary is a junior at Auburn University and serves in the Alabama National Guard as a Combat Medic.  Noah is a freshman at Andrew College in Georgia where he plays varsity soccer and volunteers his time helping others.
