Joshua White came to us by way of Community Baptist Church in Elmendorf, TX. The son and grandson of Sovereign Grace Baptist pastors, Joshua was not converted until the age of twenty-two. A hater of God with a false profession of faith, he joined the United States Army in September of 2001, seeking to put some distance between himself and what he believed to be the arduous life of a church member and pastor’s son. All the while, he was leading his young Christian wife away from the only church that she had ever known.
In the spring of 2002, Joshua received orders that would change his life forever. God, in His wonderful providence, sent Joshua (via the military) to Iraq. It was in that country that the Lord showed him his own frailty and mortality. The Spirit of God revealed Joshua’s sin to him and as a result, he repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ as his only hope of salvation.
Joshua returned home safely, and after he was honorably discharged from service, he led his young family back to South Texas. He was baptized by his father at Community Baptist Church and received into the membership.
In the fall of 2013, Joshua realized that the Lord was calling him to the gospel ministry. After much prayer, and communication with his loving wife, pastor, and two elders, he began his studies at Wayland Baptist University. During this time, he was mentored by his elders and pastor at Community Baptist Church. He began to preach weekly at the local state prison, and began to preach regularly at CBC. Joshua had previously graduated with his B.S from Liberty University, and completed his Masters of Christian Ministry at Wayland Baptist University. He spent almost ten months as a pastoral intern at Community Baptist Church, and was formally ordained to the gospel ministry by the church there.
Joshua was called to be an elder at Reformed Baptist Church of Elizabethtown, KY by a unanimous vote of the membership on July 11th, 2016. He arrived on the first full week of the following September, and joined us in membership on September 11th, 2016.
