In humility and dedicated service, I seek to shepherd a congregation.  I hope to continue leading others of all ages in closer relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ through reading His word, living a life that reflects His teaching, and sharing the Gospel with all who are willing to listen.  Truly my goal is to live out 1 Peter 5:1-4.”

Joanne originally hailed from WI, and has sung “forever” in church, school choirs, and community theatres.  After 20 years practicing public relations in the Marine Corps, she retired to Colorado where she returned to college to earn a degree in vocal performance, and opened a private voice studio for five years.  The desire to “grow old” with her twin sister moved her to return to Wisconsin in 2005.   

She became the Trinity choir director in 2012, and thinks it’s the best “job” ever!  Joanne and her husband, Fred Peck, have a beautiful brown lab, Molly Pumpkin Doodle.

After she met her husband, Zach Beffa, they moved to Appleton, WI for career opportunities.  They loved serving their communities by volunteering at United Way and The Boys and Girls Club events.  After having two children and losing her dad, mother-in-law, and her two grandparents they decided to move back to Birchwood to raise their family in a small community and closer to family.  She currently works full-time at Dairy State Bank but wanted to further serve her community and has accepted the Education, Youth and Family Coordinator position.
