Joy’s Story: Bio

Dr. Joy Dahl is a Jesus girl transformed by God’s grace. Through many trials she has learned to rise above the depths of real life by holding fast to truth and hope. Today Joy passionately helps believers embrace their calling as Christ’s ambassadors in the world. Joy loves walking the journey of life together in sisterhood, bringing encouragement and laughter to each day. She is inspired by the people she meets around the world who are overcoming their circumstances and praising the Lord in the midst of life’s storms.

Joy grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and graduated from the University of Virginia McIntire School of Commerce. Much of Joy’s career has focused on startup and high-growth companies in Washington, D.C. and New York, and for 10 years she provided Chief Financial Officer services through her consulting practice. Joy earned three degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary: Master of Christian Education, Master of Biblical Studies, and Doctor of Ministry. Joy blogs monthly on, and she is the visionary behind the BOLDLY Conference––the first-of-it’s kind Faith + Work for Women Conference. Integration of faith and work remains the foundation and emphasis of her work and teaching.

Joy and her husband, Gordon, call Dallas home. Joy’s favorite things include: God’s Word, international travel, dark chocolate, horses, flowers, beach getaways, running, big dogs, and adventure!
