About Joshua
  • Education: I have completed my B.S. in Pastoral Ministry from Mid-America Christian University. I am looking to do my Master work through Masters School of Divinity in Christian counseling
  • Experience: I interned as a youth pastor in Beaumont, TX and then moved on to spend two years as a children’s pastor. I had one of those really tough pastoral experiences in NW OK. I am currently serving as the Senior pastor for East Park Church og God.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Always read with humor.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I have found that being true to life and preaching things that are easily applicable to life is the best way to go.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Using my skydiving to show what you can feel safe doing with a life insurance policy in God.
  • Family: I have been happily married since July of O1 to Jonda. She is a school teacher
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Mom said I was certainly not boring. I am new enough so they haven’t heard me enough to get bored with me.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is gracious.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach to the third graders and everybody will understand you.
  • Books that have had an impact: Small Strong Congregations by Callahan.
  • Hobbies: I like to hunt, fly, skydive, hike, and anything that has to do with airplanes.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: My only desire is to see a world after God’s own heart.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Sucked a bug down my throat just as I was making one of those big, important, serious and weighted points.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Lets do it.
