We are real women and we are not perfect. Our nails break and we have bad hair days. We are not perfect moms or wives — despite our efforts! We are all in the same boat in that none of us has it all together. Pure Joy is a place to be honest and transparent, regardless of our background or circumstances. At Pure Joy you will experience women being real about life and the hope found in Jesus Christ.
Pure joy is a safe place of honesty and transparency where you will connect with every day women from your community. The same women you run into at the grocery store, doctors office or beauty shop will be sharing their stories and uniting for a common purpose. Heartaches , struggles and victories become merely building blocks to a new freedom found in Christ!
God has created each of us uniquely with dreams, talents, and passions that are gifted to us directly by Him. He delights in watching us make a positive impact in the world by using our God-given talents. Our purpose is for women to be encouraged to go out and change the world while taking action as we follow His call.
We invite you to attend a PureJoy Event. We firmly believe that laughter is good medicine. We consider it a priority to make the event fun in a relaxed atmosphere! During our events you will hear stories from women in your community. You will see hilarious skits, and experience God through worship with a community of believers. So come join us along with 50 of your closest friends, as we would love to meet you. Keep checking the PureJoy event page to see when we are coming to a city near you!

Attending Pure Joy over the last several years has been a much anticipated event, a retreat in the midst of battle. An opportunity to connect, refresh, and restore with God and other sisters in Christ. A night to laugh and find joy, but mostly to find God who is at work in battles both seen and unseen.
…so thankful for PJ. It is a “solid pillar” in our community. It’s building the kingdom and meeting people where they are at!
2 years ago I gave my testimony at PJ. So many blessings came from being open and sharing my story. I was not able to help last year but was looking for a way to serve PJ this year. I was given the job of greeter. I was overwhelmed by the various ages in attendance. I saw so many people I knew and hadn’t seem for a long time…every age poured through those doors, eager to be there!
PureJoy has been a place of safety to establish relationships with other women by learning to trust as well as have friends along the journey through seasons of joy and pain. It is an outlet for ministry to intercede and pray over women to experience the same freedom I have found in knowing the truth of who Jesus really is. PureJoy, for me, is also an experience of encountering the love of God through hearing testimonies of His faithfulness (through either corporate or private settings) and therefore being strengthened in my faith to pursue the heart of God with more abandon.

Pure Joy is such a refreshing women’s event. After attending women’s conferences for years, I heard about Pure Joy from a friend and decided to come to the Branson event in 2012. I felt like for the first time I was at a event that spoke on REAL issues and wasn’t the typical “girls” conference. It was so much more than that. It was a night of laughter and a chance grow closer to God. Pure Joy brought me to tears from laughing and tears from the realization that God cares about me and I have great value in Him. Finally there’s an event out there that’s about REAL issues for women!Cassie Foreman
Women today have the unique challenge of needing to have fun and also to go deep. Pure Joy does both. Women are entertained with hilarious skits, meaningful worship and relevant teaching. Don’t miss what God might do in your life!Robin Dublin
Pure Joy has encouraged me to use my God-given gifts and talents to follow my dreams. I’ve seen the Holy Spirit do a work in my life that can be explained only by Him. I can’t wait to see the work He will continue in my life as a result of being involved in Pure Joy!Kim Scowden
Pure Joy has a rich profound spiritual purpose reaching out to women which keeps God right in the center of the ministry. PJ connects women of all ages, backgrounds, denominations & all walks of life in the surrounding communities to come together under one roof to give praise & honor to our Creator. It has been a “life changing” event for numerous women who have attended and has made a difference in the lives of many. PJ has empowered me to personally be still & listen and be obedient to God. After attending PJ for 2 years and in prayer, I launched Reflections Women’s Ministry with the help of an amazing team of women and Pastoral Staff at First Baptist Forsyth.Amy Wilhoit
