Joy Hale

Director of Community Care & Alumni Relations


I was born in Irving, Texas, where I met my husband of 25 years, Charlie. We began our family in Irving. We have four children Bailee (CCA alumni), Ellie (CCA alumni), Charles (11th), and Gabe (9th). We moved closer to Colleyville when our oldest daughter started 1st grade at CCA. One of the greatest blessings in life is being a wife and mother. I earned a Bachelor of Business from the University of North Texas and a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Dallas Baptist University. I love how the Lord has used my business and ministry training in my job over the years at CCA. I am passionate about family ministry, and I am so thankful my current position at CCA includes equipping and caring for families.
