Josh spent most of his life growing up in the Island Lake/Wauconda area. Josh committed his life to Christ at a young age and has been a committed Christian most of his life.
After graduating from Moody Bible Institute in 2013, Josh began attending Trinity Evangelical Divinity School where he is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Systematic Theology. Since Josh began his graduate studies at Trinity, he has been attending Life Bridge Community Church, the church in which he spent most of his childhood. He began serving as a high school youth leader, and stepped in as the Interim Youth Pastor when the former youth pastor resigned.
Josh has always had a love for youth ministry. Josh has a passion for relationships, a passion for God's Word, and a passion to see high school and junior high students become mature followers of Christ.
Josh met his wife, Laura, while meeting with a friend at Starbucks in Lake Zurich. When Josh mentioned his experience at the recent Challenge Conference for high school students, Laura interjected herself into the conversation and the rest is history.
