But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.       John 17:13

My name is Austin Clay Minor (A.C Minor). I am an artist, a writer, a pastor, a husband, and a father. I created this little organization called Joy in the Father in hopes of glorifying God with the talents and abilities that he has given me and providing supplemental material to equip and encourage his church. So, take a look around. Sift through the colorful paintings. Read an insightful article. Check out my book. But above all, find your Joy in the Father through the blood of Jesus Christ, because that is the purpose for which you were made. 


Joy In the Father exists in effort to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the veiled sinners of the world and to supplement believers with the resources to experience the Almighty in a more powerful and intimate way. As servants of the Father, we strive to show you the Father, so that you may experience the fulfillment and the joy of the Father.


Joy in the Father provides articles, sermons and other supplemental information and content to encourage and strengthen you in your walk with the Almighty. We strive to help brothers and sisters in Christ improve their experience of the Lord and in all things glorify and magnify His name.


Joy in the Father is a culmination of humble servants of Christ that seek to use their gifts and talents to build up God's Church and ultimately glorify and magnify His holy name.
