About the Reverend Joy Perkett

IMG_8271A lover of people, I earned my Master of Social Work and Master of Divinity from Boston University in 2010.

For me, congregational ministry is the most meaningful way that I can use my gifts of faith and action.  I currently serve as an American Baptist pastor.  I enjoy preaching, meeting new people, embodying racial justice, birding, board gaming, and hiking in the mountains.

When I have free time, you can find me trying something new.  On a whim, I learned improv, ran a 50k race, backpacked the Laugavegurinn trail in Iceland, and night hiked most of the Catskill high peaks in the winter.

I use this site as a way to share my life with you.

The journey is precious.

Here, I share the wisdom that I learn along the trek.
