Creating a safe space for students to find their home in God.
Meet our new HSM Pastor: Josh Suaverdez!
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. Since June, Josh has been our High School Summer Coordinator, leading a great summer experience for our HSM students. 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.
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.
