Jonie joined our staff at Covenant as Director of Music Ministry in January 2016. Prior to coming on staff, she became a member of Covenant in 2008 serving as a volunteer with multiple ministries including the Covenant choir and worship team.
Jonie was born and raised in Iowa and spent her summer and winter breaks visiting her father in California. It was during one of those visits, through the ministry of Twain Harte Evangelical Free Church that Jonie first met Jesus and invited him to be her Lord and Savior. That would be a day she would never forget -- but not just for that reason! It was on that same day that she also met the man she would one day marry, Billy Archie.
Jonie holds a Bachelor of Music from California State University, Stanislaus with an emphasis in choral conducting.
