Josh grew up in Southern California and graduated from Biola University with a B.A. in Biblical and Theological Studies and a minor in Communication Studies. He began as a Pastoral Intern at Rose Drive the fall of 2018 and then stepped into High School Ministry leadership in March 2019. God has given Josh a deep desire for students and people of all kinds to know that they are loved and prized in the eyes of Christ. Josh is newly married to Felicia and they reside in Placentia.
Some of Josh’s interests include the hardcore/punk music scene, baseball, basketball, hockey, watching Formula 1 Racing, and football. He is so excited to continue to do life with HSM students as their High School Pastor and is looking forward to the opportunities to love, support, and equip them as they continue to grow personally and in Christ.

Due to overwhelming demand, HSM Camp is full.
Please join the Wait List for a $50 commitment.
If we are unable to secure a spot for your child, your $50 will be refunded.
