A Little About Pastor Joshua: 

If I had to eat from one restaurant for the rest of my life, it would probably be Chick-fil-A. One of the things I love about being a pastor is that I get to spend time meeting with people (at Chick-fil-A) and talking with them about life!
“If my house was on fire and all the people were out, the first thing I would grab is a painting of my wife Monica, which took me over 200 hours to paint. We’ve been married 12 years and have 4 kids.”
“If I could talk about anything for one hour with no preparation, it would be about the history and philosophy of loose leaf tea. I’m a certified tea guru. But ever since my third child was born, I began drinking coffee.
