April Jolley joined Turning Point Ministries in September as our Executive Director. We are thrilled to have someone with her experience join Turning Point Ministries. Here is a little bit about April:
From a humble family-owned business to the challenges of international NGO work, to political and Association management, April Jolley is a change agent for modernization. April’s core values drive her to service in all she does. She’s worked in her father’s software company, planned hundreds of social and corporate events, traveled to over 25 countries doing nonprofit work, coordinated political campaigns and managed state-wide associations. Leadership development, strategic planning and team building are areas of focus she enjoys the most in her work.
Her passion for service extends to her personal life. She serves on the board of Sharing Tree and Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy. With a degree in Organizational Leadership from the University of Central Oklahoma, she brings a unique perspective to the non-profit sector.
Originally from Tulsa, April is a mom to four children, two of which are adopted. Her experience as a mother to adopted children drives her desire for everyone to have a safe place to call home. Her commitment to excellence and compassion for those who need a hand up, are what motivates her to join Turning Point Ministries. She, husband Clark, and family attend Crossings Community Church.
