Connecting people to finish the task
JOY Ministries was founded in 2015 to serve the Body of Christ in finishing the task Jesus started. Our staff has 30 years of experience connecting churches with unreached people groups to make disciples of Jesus.
A Basque/ Camino Adventure
Join us in 2022 for a 15 day adventure in Basque Country.
The Camino de Santiago is considered a bucket list destination for many people, whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not. We will be exploring faith and spirituality during one day visiting Saint John Pied o Port and 6 days on the Camino. Participants will be walking approximately 15 miles a day and be staying with other pilgrims on the journey. (Accommodations can be made if one is unable to walk the full journey.)
The Basque Experience will be 6 days of touring and tasting Basque culture. Participants will be visiting several Basque historical sites, landmarks, museums, beaches, and experiencing a traditional cider house, txakoli vineyard, a sheep farm, pintxo bar hopping (unique hors d’oeuvre appetizers) and other gastronomical delights.
Please complete our survey to determine the best time to walk the Camino. The link below will take you to our JOY Travel USA website.
Olabe – live and serve abroad
Until recently, Olabe was a 500 year old abandoned farm on the wild Basque coast. New owners Joseba and Joanna Attard have a clear vision to breathe new life into these ancient stones, converting Olabe and the surrounding land into a vibrant cultural hub – a place to be used for conferences, retreats, camps, courses, rural skills workshops, glamping, creative events and community activities.
Olabe is looking for financial investors to finish the project and support the mission in creating a place where people can “disconnect to reconnect” through using the farm to reconnect with nature and the Creator.

“Turn Key” Solutions for Missions
We have nearly 30 years of experience plugging churches into cross cultural missions. Our solution gives individuals and families the opportunity to grow in their faith and have a life changing experience engaging with an unreached people.
Jesus spent time building a relationship with people. This is a core value of what we do: relationships. To that end, we train the American families about the different culture and how to make a stranger a family member. The cross-cultural relationship begins before they even arrive to the US and will last a life time.
