Administrative Coordinator
Joni and Friends Bay Area Ministries
Dublin, CA

My name is Jayson Rice and I am the Church Relations Coordinator for Joni and Friends Bay Area, focusing initially on equipping and encouraging the churches of the East Bay. God brought me to Joni and Friends by allowing me to go through suffering and challenges in my early life, giving me a heart for the broken and those without a voice. I have been a leader with the youth of Castro Valley First Baptist for several years and I am helping with the beginning phase of launching a disability ministry. The disability community has allowed their burdens to help me see God in a different way. My prayer is that I might be able to share and encourage others by what I have seen.
