Joyce Payton

Assistant to the Pastor

Joyce Payton serves in a secretarial capacity as Assistant to the Pastor. Joyce has been in this type work most all of her life. For many years she was a pastor’s wife and, therefore, knows the workings of a church from the inside out. She currently plays the piano for the church as well. Joyce has two children (Pastor Greg and Sonya Payton Howell), six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.


Joyce attended Oklahoma Baptist University while working full time on the Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. She also worked in other government agencies in the early years. Later she worked as a medical transcriptionist at a hospital in Oklahoma. However, her work with Florida Baptist and Montana Southern Baptist Conventions has been most beneficial as it relates to working in the church. Joyce began doing the church’s secretarial work in 2002 before the church launched in 2003.


Joyce’s favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, making cards, and playing the piano.


Her favorite scripture is Romans 1:16.
