About Josh

As a child attending Langhorne Presbyterian Church near Philadelphia, Pa., I remember looking up at my pastors and thinking, “Who would ever want THAT to be their job?” A few years after I was confirmed, I learned about God’s sense of humor when I sensed a call to ministry during a high school mission trip. After graduating from Elizabethtown College in central Pennsylvania with a major in Communications and Religious Studies, I enrolled at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Va.

During seminary, I discovered a passion for chaplaincy. My first ordained position was as the chaplain for at-risk youth at UMFS, a residential treatment center. From there, I moved on to VCU Health, where I served as the pediatric chaplain for ten years, providing crisis support to children and families from all walks of life. During those years, I was the interim pastor for several smaller congregations in the Presbytery of the James, as well as assistant professor of clinical ethics at the VCU College of Health Professions.

My ministry has been centered on meeting young people where they are and helping them grow in their sense of belonging, identity, and purpose. I love wrestling with difficult questions and finding concrete ways to apply faith to everyday life.

My wife, Jillian, is a baptist pastor and an avid knitter. Our daughter, Norah, loves writing stories and building legos. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping and breeding tropical fish.

Elders are charged with the oversight of the life of our congregation – leading, governing, and caring for its members.  Both individually and collectively (as the Session), elders provide leadership in worship, teaching, mission, evangelism, care and nurture.  Along with the pastors, the elders are the shepherds of the flock.

Deacons are charged with the sympathy, witness and service for all our members. Deacons are persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies and sound judgment. Both individually and collectively (as the Diaconate), deacons provide compassionate care for all church members.
