The Founder of Joy Now!

Tom Acey


Tom Acey, founder of Joy Now! is a disciple of Jesus Christ who has served in various church ministry programs and leadership positions over the last 20 years at Peace United Methodist Church in Orlando, Florida.

Tom is an experienced creator and facilitator of transformational workshops and trainings. He ventured into faith-based workshops with his Awakening The Joy Within©, which focuses on freeing believers from limiting beliefs and habits that prevent them from experiencing true joy and living joyfully to the glory of God.

Joy, a fruit of the Spirit, is not just a feeling. It is a state of being! Christians are expected to live joyfully, but most do not joyfully live. The Fruit of Joy is realized in us through the elimination of our bad habits and limiting beliefs that separate us from God, resulting in the growth of our relationship and devotion to God.


The good news is that joy is within your grasp! Awakening the Joy Within will prepare you to receive the Fruit of joy by transforming your mind and soul, allowing you to experience the true joy you deserve.

Awakening the Joy Within is a new book by Tom Acey which addresses the need for joy in our lives and how it may be attained. 

Our Mission

At Joy Now!, we believe that the fruit of Joy can be realized in us only through elimination of barriers and limiting beliefs. Our programs focus on doing whatever is necessary to awaken the divine Spirit of joy within each of us, bringing us to live our lives according to God’s plan.


Joy Now! offers a range of Christ-centered programs, including live, experiential workshops, online courses and training and individual and group coaching.
