Who is Joyce Meyer?
Joyce Meyer is an evangelist, American Christian author, pastor, and president of Joyce Meyer Ministries.
She built her industry from nothing, except her strong faith in God, and her call to deliver others using the Word of the Lord.
Meyer was born as Patricia Joyce Hutchison on June 4, 1943.
She didn’t have an idyllic childhood. Her father left to fight in World War II after she was born.
