This is a short bio that Josh has written about himself. He’ll share the biggest accomplishments in his life (while conveniently skipping over the low points) in hopes that you’ll take his writing more seriously. He hopes it come across with just the right mixture of humility and self-promotion. Josh would love to figure out a way to casually work in a few big words like ‘quixotic’ and ‘serendipitous’ to impress you, but he’s afraid that might be over the top.
He’s had an unusual life. Born and raised in California, Josh graduated college from California Baptist University and spent two years as a missionary in Africa before coming back to America and finding the love of his life (Robin). Josh graduated from New Orleans Baptist Seminary with a Masters and Doctorate. He served in student ministry for ten years before coming to Mt. Vernon Church as Lead Pastor.
Josh, his gorgeous wife Robin, and their outrageously gorgeous kids Zeke, Shepherd, Lincoln and Elle, live in Columbus. When he’s not blogging he enjoys reading anything he can get his hands on, rough-housing with his kids, and conquering the world on the latest iPhone app.
If you’re ever in Columbus MS, he would love for you to come and be a part of Mt Vernon Church, a contagious community of hope. Truth be told, Josh is uncomfortable referring to himself in the third person, so if it’s alright with you, I’m going to stop now. Enjoy the blog!
