In the fall of 2013, Joshua realized that the Lord was giving him a desire for 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.
