Meet the women behind Sojo Academy

Arabah Joy of www.sojoacademy.com

CO-FOUNDER

AJ

Arabah Joy is wife to Jackson, adoptive and biological mom to 4. Her 22 years in ministry include church planting, 14 years of overseas missionary service, writing, and mentoring.

AJ especially loves sharing Bible study methods so others can experience the same life-transforming power of God’s word that she has.

She has written books, resources, and prayer challenges, including her best-selling 40-day devotional,  Trust Without Borders…but secretly hopes her moonwalking skills will go viral on YouTube one day.

Jen

Jen Evangelista is the wife of 25 years to Brad, who is currently serving as the Lead Pastor of a church they planted in Georgia.  She's the mom to 4 awesome kids (no, she is not biased about this) and is a Pediatrician.

Jen has a passion for the local church, missions, teaching women, and the Gospel.  You will often find that someone from her family is overseas walking alongside believers from other cultures and nations.

Jen shares creative ways to study God's Word on the Grace in Color website and loves digging deeper into the truth of the Gospel with other women.
