Meet the women behind Sojo Academy
Jen Evangelista is the wife of over 27 years to Brad, who is currently serving as the Lead Pastor of a church they planted in Georgia. She's the mom of 4 awesome kids, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and a perfect grandson. She is also a practicing 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.
Arabah Joy is wife to Jackson, adoptive and biological mom to 4. Her 25 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 Border… but secretly hopes her moonwalking skills will go viral on YouTube one day.
The Sojo Team
Sojo Support Director
Trista Israelow lives in small-town, Texas with her two beautiful children and is the oil that keeps the Sojo machine running! She not only helps with customer service issues that arise but is behind the scenes in almost every aspect of Sojo. Plus, she keeps Jen and AJ on task (at least she tries). Trista is an integral part of the team and we are blessed to have her.
Veronica Tostes lives in Florida with her husband and sweet puppy. She runs The Sojo Show podcast (truly, it wouldn't happen without her) along with setting up back-end marketing stuff Jen and AJ are not very good at :). She's a joy, is full of awesome ideas, and we are so glad she is part of the Sojo team!
Erin Lemanski lives in Missouri with her husband and two children and she literally makes us look good! Erin is the magic behind the gorgeous workbooks and Bible journaling kits each Sojo Academy member enjoys each month. Her creativity and design skills are amazing and we are so thrilled she shares them with us!
Jeanel Pangindian and her sweet cat, Carmela, live in the Philipines and she is a precious part of the Sojo team. Jeanel helps us with Facebook, Pinterest, behind the scenes work, and just about anything we need from her. She loves life and Sojo and we are happy to have her!
Lore Sepulveda lives in Mexico with her cats and is active in the Facebook community answering questions, starting conversations, and offering encouragement. She also helps with the weekly emails that we send to our members and everyone on the email list. Lore loves hearing what our members are doing and making them feel like part of the family.
