Joyce Satorius

Our Administrative Assistant, Joyce Satorius, was born in Morris and raised in Minooka. She married Walt in 1975. They are the proud parents of Matt (married to Jamie) and Benjy (married to Tricia). Joyce and husband Walt, also a Minooka native, reside in Minooka. She volunteered as secretary at Minooka Bible Church. After volunteering for 11 years, she was brought on staff as the administrative assistant.

Joyce enjoys spending time with friends, all varieties of good music, and the occasional piece of French Silk pie. Summer is her favorite time of year because it's time for bike riding. She also plays a mean game of racquetball in any season, so watch out for her on the courts! Walt and Joyce enjoy taking cruises when time permits.

Joyce first trusted Jesus as her Savior in August 1979 after hearing the Gospel from Pastor Harv Russell. Her most beloved Scripture verse is Proverbs 3:5-6. It is clear to Joyce that God has given her a heart for pastors. Joyce considers it a privilege to serve in any capacity at MBC.
