Joanna’s heart is for the persecuted church - the men and women who suffer for Christ. She recently launched her advocacy called “Strengthen What Remains” where she shares the plight of the persecuted church. This formation came over years of exposure to Open Doors International Ministry where her family serves in the leadership body in Asia for 38 years.

Joanna is an educator by profession. She has been teaching for more than eight years. She took up Education at Miriam College, finished her Master’s degree in Education Administration at the Ateneo De Manila University, and took a short course in Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Oxford. She is also a part of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) Emerging Apologists community, and she also finished her online studies in Apologetics through RZIM’s Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. Now, she is currently finishing her master’s degree in Theology at the Asian Theological School.
