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.
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.
HSM Wednesday Recharge
We meet in person every Wednesday throughout the school year so students can recharge and not lose sight of themselves, their friends, and God!
HSM Sunday Refocus
We meet in person on Sundays before the Outdoor Service and explore the Gospel of Jesus and everything that is our God! We aim to refocus our sights on who Jesus is and how He can impact our lives. Currently, we are looking into answering the questions, “Is God real?” and “Who is He?”
