Celebrating God’s Servants
A faithful servant, Joyce Palanca has dedicated her life to serving God. Joyce grew up in Orange County and has been married to her sweetheart Matthew for 25 years! They have raised three children; Christian, Abri and Juliette, and she marvels at the way God has molded each of them into Godly adults.
Joyce and her family attend Harvest Christian Fellowship in Irvine where she has been involved in their Virtue Women’s Bible Study and Children’s Ministry for several years. She also has been an active member of National Charity League holding several positions.
The past ten years, we have been blessed to have Joyce as a part of the Released Time Christian Education family. She began by teaching the precious children at Villa Park Elementary. She cherished her time sharing with the children the joys of a relationship with Christ. Joyce’s passion for Released Time began in her youth as she was a Released Time student herself at Walt Disney Elementary in Anaheim.
She combined her memories from attending and later teaching RT classes, to now serving faithfully on the RT Board as Secretary.
Joyce’s joy for the Lord and her sweet, caring spirit have also given her success in her real estate career with the Palanca Group at Keller Williams in North Tustin.
Joyce’s life truly reflects Deuteronomy 11:19, “Teach (these words of mine), carefully to your children, talking about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up; and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates, so that you and your children will live long…as long as there is sky above the earth.”.
