As Director of Children’s Ministry, Josh works directly with the children at Southminster. He is excited about the children’s programs already going on at the church as well as bringing in new ideas for all children! Children were important to Jesus and our important to our church by letting the light of Christ be ever present in their lives. In his time off, Josh loves to cook, work on his flower garden, and brew different beer recipes. You’ll catch him watching a Braves baseball game or at a local eatery/brewery.
Born in Naples, Italy and raised in Pensacola, FL, Josh graduated in 2009 from Florida Southern College with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion as well as focusing on Theater and Psychology. He served in various churches in Florida, Georgia and Indiana mainly in youth ministry but loves all areas of the local church and coming up with new ideas that serve the community the best way they can. He graduated with his Master of Pratical Theology from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA in 2014. He married his wife, Anna Owens who also graduated from Columbia Theological Seminary. After following Anna to two different calls, Josh was called to pursue ordination and began going back to seminary for his Master of Divinity. Anna and Josh have two rescue dogs, Abby and Newt. We are excited about welcoming our first child into the world in July, 2020.
