She then enrolled in Princeton Theological Seminary where she earned an MDiv. She was ordained as an elder in 1999. HeyYoung's personal ministry is to "Know God and Make God known."

She and her husband, Gary have twin children who are freshman at Brown and American Universities
Originally from central New Jersey, Mary Jo and her family enjoyed vacationing in Cape May for many years before retiring here in 2014. Her family joined the church in 2015 and have been active members ever since. They are grounded in this church family because of the love and many friendships they share. Mary Jo and her husband Ernie have two adult children - Megan and Ernie Jr. She has been an active member participating in many of the church projects and looks forward to further serving the church in her new role as staff.
I look forward to the future as the many talents of this diverse church family are utilized to do God’s work. With friends and members of the congregation contributing, we have expanded our mission throughout the world. With Pastor HeyYoung at the helm, I am certain we will find even more ways to serve and spread the Good News! - Jon Vile
