Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network Women desire to gather, equip, and activate women credentialed holders, pastors, ministry leaders, and ministry spouses to actively pursue their calling, to serve well in their home, their church, and their workplace.



Joelene Taylor, our newly appointed Director of Women, is an Ordained Minister of the Wisconsin Northern Michigan Ministries Network and comes to serve our network women with many years of Wisconsin ministry experience. She and her husband, Kevin, are Lead Pastors of Journey Church, with campuses in Kenosha and Burlington, WI. As well as Beach Park, IL and Vilnius, Lithuania. Joelene loves to encourage women to activate their inborn and spirit-born gifts to lead as equal and called partners in ministry.


Joelene leads Journey Women, sits on the Kingdom Builder Global Team Leadership team, and chaired the Spiritual Formations Department at Christian Life School in Kenosha for ten years. A steady passion over the years has been fighting Human Trafficking through initiating Hope Run Kenosha, the Hope Forum, and partnering with organizations stateside and in Thailand and India.


She and Kevin have three married daughters. She loves being Nonni to Elias, Ruby, Tessa and Calvin. She loves biking, traveling, spending time with family, and eating pasta.


She is excited to use her experiences and passion to encourage and lead our Network Women.
