Family Camp




Susie grew up in Bethany, Okla., and attended Southern Nazarene University where she served as the first elected female student gov-ernment president and received a B.A. in Communications with minors in education, English and creative writing. She received her Mas-ter’s Degree in creative writing from the University of Central Oklahoma. Susie was awarded the honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree from her alma mater in 2016.

Susie served as a fulltime youth pastor in Conway, Ark., Longmont, Colo., San Antonio, Texas and Bethany, Okla. She also served as a public school teacher after working as ministry staff. Her public school experience was interrupted with an invitation to join Focus on the Family who hired her to create a magazine for teen girls. Brio was launched in March of 1990, and Susie served as editor for nearly two decades. During that time, she also launched a spin-off magazine for older girls called Brio & Beyond. She also started a book line for teens girls, began overseas mission trips for guys and girls, and produced two mother/daughter cruises.

In 2009, due to economic problems, Focus on the Family discontinued their teen products and dismissed the youth staff. Susie, already an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, entered fulltime evangelism while launching a new magazine for teen girls titled SUSIE Mag. She was against naming it after herself, but the marketing team at the new publisher’s insisted on using her name as a bridge of familiarity for Christian teen girls wondering what happened to Brio. Three years later, she changed the title to SISTERHOOD MAGAZINE. Susie continued as editor until 2014 and then stepped away from the daily tasks to concentrate more on fulltime speaking and writing.



Joel and Kristin grew up in Medford, OR and have been married since 2006. Both attended Oregon State University where Joel received his B.S. in Chemistry and Kristin her B.A. in Sociology. While living in San Francisco, both Joel and Kristin worked for Mercy Housing, a leading Non-profit in the affordable housing industry, and this is where they each developed a passion for serving others. Joel later returned to school at Southern Oregon University and earned his MBA. Before relocating to Amman, he was employed as a Marketing Coordinator for the local credit union. Kristin had been serving on staff at New Life Church of the Nazarene, working primarily in Local and Global Missions and Communications. She also received her first District License in May 2020 and is pursuing ordination. Their son Jackson is 7 and attending school in Amman.

Joel and Kristin are so excited to have been called to participate in the work of the Nazarene Church throughout Jordan and the Middle East. As the Field Finance Coordinators, they will have the opportunity to facilitate crucial projects that will greatly impact the lives of many across the region.
