Josh is from Amory, MS where he attended First Baptist Church. After graduating from Amory High School in 2005 and never really establishing a relationship with Jesus, he fell away from the church and into a lifestyle that was far from Christ. In 2008, Josh committed his life to Christ and left the old behind. He transferred from Itawamba Community College to Mississippi State University in 2008. While there, he became an active part of Calvary Baptist Church and, eventually, became a youth intern. It was during this internship, that he felt God calling him into student ministry. While at Calvary, Josh lead worship for the youth and their college ministry, CW215. After graduating from MSU in August 2011, he became the youth minister at First Baptist Church in Maben, MS, where he served for two years before being called to Folsom in May of 2013. It was during those couple of years that God really laid on his heart that student ministry was definitely where He wanted him. Today, students are bombarded with ideas and images that are far from Christ, and Josh's passions are to build relationships, minister to students, and show them that there is a way better route, through Jesus, than what the world shows us. Josh and his wife, Olivia, were married June 29, 2013 and share the same heart for students. Josh attends New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, LA where he's working towards a Master's of Divinity in Christian Education. In his free time, Josh likes playing guitar, watching movies, being outside, and playing with his dogs, Ace and Shadow.
