“Proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ and leading all into a growing relationship with Him.”


Pastor Josh grew up in West Virginia, and that explains a lot!

He was raised in the country and has a love for God’s creation.

Growing up, he spent a lot of time with his grandparents; one

of which was a preacher. Despite his desire to enlist in the

military, God had other plans. So, after a prayer for guidance,

God called him into ministry while he was in high school. He

attended Southern Wesleyan University where he studied to

become a preacher and met the love of his life, Sarah.

After leaving college for financial reasons, Pastor Joshua and

Sarah were married, and he served as a chaplain at the large

church in High Point, NC. Sensing God’s continued call,

Joshua and Sarah returned to Southern Wesleyan to finish his

education. Upon his graduation, they moved to the Smoky Mountains where he served as pastor for Cornerstone Wesleyan Church for a few years, and their daughter Clara was born, before returning to High Point to serve as a choir director and the assistant pastor at Hickory Chapel Wesleyan Church.

God then called Pastor Joshua to a small town in Northern Pennsylvania where he and Sarah fell in love with the congregation here at Athens Wesleyan Church.
