Erika Mcd


Erika McDowell serves as an Equipping Coordinator for the Bible Adventure Program. She first became connected with Joy El through her children coming to camp. She’s excited to see how Joy El’s programs work to change the lives of children to live for Jesus. Erika is originally from Orange County, NY, about moved to Fayetteville, PA, when she was 17. She now resides in St Thomas with her husband James. They have 3 children Courtney, Ally (who lives in heaven) and Jimmy. They’re also blessed with son-in-law Jesse and granddaughter Jaylynn.

In her free time, Erika enjoys reading, doing puzzles, camping, weekend trips, and butterflies. Her favorite scripture passage is Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ.”
