Danette Crawford is a powerful evangelist, author, speaker and TV host, with a refreshing message of hope and encouragement. At the age of 19 she started in the ministry as a Youth Pastor, and by 21 was traveling as an evangelist. Since that time, she has been teaching and preaching the Word of God, and traveling nationally and internationally as a requested speaker. She has seen thousands of people receive physical miracles, receive deliverance from addictions, and be set free from emotional baggage.
She serves as the President of Joy Ministries Evangelistic Association, which she founded in 1989. This outreach ministry offers more than a handout - it gives a "hand up" to those in need. Each year, multiple thousands of people are reached through the 17 different outreach programs of Joy Ministries. From summer reading camps in subsidized neighborhoods to back to work programs for single mothers, Danette not only preaches the Gospel, but does the Gospel - meeting the material, physical and spiritual needs of so many people.
Her television ministry, Joy in the Morning with Danette Crawford, is broadcast weekly into over 165 million homes nationally. A Regent University graduate with a Master of Arts degree in counseling, she shares on topics such as unforgiveness, roots of rejection, depression and emotional brokenness. The TV ministry phone lines are continually busy with hurting people seeking to get set free. She has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC, the 700 Club, Living the Life, TBN, Paula White Today, 100 Huntley Street and many other networks, as well as in numerous newspapers and magazines.
