About Josh

I was raised in a family of five with two parents who loved the Lord, and actively lived out their faith. My parents taught me the gospel message and would say that I was saved at a very young age, but do not recall the exact time. I do, however, know for a fact that when I was 10 years at a camp going back to my bunk after hearing the gospel message presented and whether it was a rededication or for the first time, I decided to trust in Jesus Christ and what He had done for me through His death, burial, and resurrection to pay for my sins and place His righteousness to my account. At that point, not a whole lot changed. I went to church, kids clubs, and youth groups, but for the most part I was riding along on my parents faith and I did not make it personal. As I came to my high school years I really walked away from my relationship with the Lord, I tried to live my own version of what I thought a fulfilling life looked like. Obviously, it did not work for long and during my senior year I decided I was going to give my life back over to the Lord and it is also when I decided to go to the Word of Life Bible Institute. At the Bible Institute God got a hold of my life and as I grew deeper in my relationship with Him and learned more about who He is, I realized how personally responsible I am for taking the message of the gospel to those who do not yet know Him. It was around half way through my first year that I started thinking about doing full-time ministry as my career. During my second year I was searching for what God would have me do, and over the year I was presented with a few different options. In a class called Missions Reality, every second year is required to raise support and travel to a Word of Life location around the world. I was placed on the team traveling to Portugal, and through taking part in the ministry there and joining the amazing team that is there already, I really started to consider if that was the best option for me to go back for two years. Not too long after returning from the trip I made my final decision to commit two years to the Cross Culture Internship program.

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
