Joelieanna is passionate about serving the Lord and bringing glory to His name through discipling the next generation. Over the last 16 years, Joelieanna has served missionary families at a mission agency, taught students at Classical Conversations, and coordinated many youth events with an ultimate goal of seeing students grow in their relationship with God. She is thrilled at the opportunity to serve in an organization whose mission is to Change Lives to Change the World as her family’s vision has been guided by Genesis 12:2, “blessed to be a blessing.”
TeenPact inspired her oldest, Isabella, in her relationship with Christ and allowed her to see how she can impact the world for God. Her son, Skyler was encouraged and mentored by students and staff to invest in others and to be bold for Christ. Joelieanna and her husband, Rob, chaperoned a state class and at NatCon, where they witnessed a deep spiritual impact. All of this inspired her to volunteer as the Central Florida State Class Coordinator for this upcoming year. The family is excited to continue serving TeenPact.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Joelieanna and her family moved to Orlando, FL while in middle school. The transition was difficult, as they were immersed in a new culture with different customs, food, and language. That move, however, shaped her into the person she is today.
She loves learning about different cultures and people groups, hiking in the mountains, leading youth Bible studies, hosting students and friends, and mentoring students in their relationship with Christ.
