Pastor Joy Frenette

Pastor Joy and her husband Richard arrived in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan in late October 2012 having answered the call to be our Pastor here at Salem.  Joy received her training at the Master’s Institute Seminary in   St. Paul, Minnesota, graduating with a Master’s of Divinity degree in May of 2010. She is ordained through LCMC (Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ). Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church is Pastor Joy’s first parish and she is a second career Pastor. Joy and Richard are natives of Kenora located in Northwestern Ontario; though the landscape and weather experiences are quite different here in Shaunavon Joy and Richard are very much enjoying prairie life. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing (as you trust in Him), so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13
