Our Pastors

Pastor Josh Smith

Josh Smith, Senior Pastor

Josh came to Christ at the tender age of 6. At the age of 7 God gave him the opportunity to lead one of his baseball teammates to Christ during a game and has had the heart and ability to evangelize ever since. He specializes in sharing the gospel of Jesus in a passionate and relevant way that evokes a response from whoever he is speaking to. He has a B.A. in Bible and Theology from California Baptist University and will be finishing his M.A. in Missional Church Movements from Wheaton College Graduate School in the fall of 2021.

Josh married Jamie on December 31st in 2016. They went to school together from 1st-3rd grade, but Jamie left Josh's life when she switched schools in 3rd grade; but God brought them back together at a Bible study just before the start of their senior year of college. They enjoy getting to love God, one another, and others together. Josh and Jamie are complete opposites in most ways, (except for their love for Jesus, coffee, and the Harry Potter movies and books) and they are extremely thankful to be able to sharpen one another as best friends for life.
