About Joshua Bowers

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

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.
