Josh is the campus pastors at Smith's Ferry Grace, also known as Chapel in the Pines. Josh and his wife Jackie have been married since 2006 and have three little girls, Alexis, Paige, and Megan. They enjoy living in a parsonage next to the church in Smiths Ferry, their own mountain paradise community. They welcome you to stop by anytime to look around the 6 acres the church and campground sit on to see the work being done at this campus.


Josh went to high school at Grace when it had a school as part of its ministry. After graduating, Josh spent a year as a correctional officer and 7 years in law enforcement as a State Trooper, God began to pull Josh back to Him and make it apparent he was to be in ministry and not pursuing his own goals. Josh left the State Police in April of 2014 to come work at Grace.


Josh loves to hunt, fish, hike, play basketball, build web applications, and spend time with his family. Josh and Jackie invest their time in raising their family and uniting people in their community with each other and Jesus. Josh also oversees IT at all of our campuses and he develops and maintains our website and procedures software.
