Joan Root served for two years as the founding director of Encounter School of Ministry – Lexington Campus after working for several years as the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Diocese of Lexington, and then as Eastern Regional Director for Life Teen International. Prior to full-time ministry, she served 23 years as a police officer in Lexington, where she became passionate about bringing the love of Christ to a hurting world. Feeling the call to ministry, she retired as a Sergeant and began seminary studies, obtaining her Master’s degree in Roman Catholic Pastoral Studies. She is married to Paul who serves as a deacon at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Lexington. They have two children and two grandchildren.
This diocese has reviewed and welcomed the Encounter School of Ministry.
“I am happy to give my approval for you and the leadership team to begin the process to establish an Encounter School of Ministry in the Diocese of Lexington. I prayerfully wish you every success as you form disciples to share the healing ministry of Jesus in our broken and suffering world.”
– Bishop John Stowe, O.F.M. Conv.
