Joyce Velasquez has a Bachelors Degree in Home Economics from Texas State University (Southwest Texas State, 1978) and a Masters Degree in Education from University of the Incarnate Word (Incarnate Word College, 1982.) She has been in full time Christian ministry since 1992, first with Child Evangelism Fellowship as local Executive Director in San Antonio, TX and more recently(since 2001,) as Founder and Executive Director of One Way International.
Through her years in ministry, God has used Joyce as a home-based missionary in the US as well as taking her to minister as a teacher of teachers in various countries: Moldova, Croatia, Romania, Russia, Nigeria, and the country of Georgia. Joyce loves teaching others how to share the Gospel, integrate the Gospel into Bible stories/lessons, and train youth and adults how to teach children, partner with local schools in the ministry of service, and take the challenge of going overseas on missions trips.
Although she has many favorites, one of Joyce’s most cherished verse in the Bible is the one that led her to full assurance of her salvation and knowledge of her eternally promised home in heaven, I John 5:13: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.”
