The Rev. Dr. Jimmy Reader and Rev. Joy Bergfalk prefer to be called Jimmy and Joy. Married since 1999, they have a blended family of eight children and 37 grandchildren living in several states. As co-pastors, they bring a combined 93 years of ministry to their pastoral work in Victor. After decades of ministry in Kansas, Jimmy served as interim pastor at four Presbyterian churches and retired in 2021 from the United Church of Pittsford. Joy served Baptist and Presbyterian churches in Minnesota, Iowa, and New York, and has preached at dozens of churches in recent years while being the executive director of the Coffee Connection, a non-profit business empowering women in recovery from addiction, trauma, and incarceration. Both are ordained American Baptist clergy.
They begin their call to Victor First on February 20, 2023.
