Pastor Josh along with his family relocated in November 2017 to Clarksville, Virginia from Santa Claus, Indiana where he was the Pastor of First Baptist Church Huntingburg.
He graduated in 2002 with his Bachelors in Pastoral Ministries from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, Kentucky. After graduating he began ministering to youth as a Minister of Youth. He did this for the next 12 years in churches in Ohio and Kentucky. This was and still a great passion of his. For him, it was amazing to see how the gospel of Jesus transforms lives and families and it all starts by reaching teenagers.
In 2013, he graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary with his Masters in Christian Leadership and Organization. After graduating, he took on the task of becoming a Senior Pastor and walking them through a Church Revitalization Process. During his tenure at First Baptist Church Huntingburg, he led them not just through a church revitalization spiritually but also a church remodeling process. He helped them reorganized to reach a community in need of Christ’s love.
