Pastor Josh finished his studies in May of 2013 at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since then, Josh and his wife, Rachel, have returned to their native Nebraska so he could begin his pastoral ministry at Augustana. Previous to serving here in Genoa, Josh worked as a youth minister both in Nebraska and Minnesota.
The goal of Pastor Josh's ministry is to make the forgiveness and new creation that comes from Jesus known in people's daily lives. “Our life of faith does not end the moment we step out of the church door,” Josh says, “everything we do is a part of our life of faith.”
When he is not preaching, writing, or visiting people, Pastor Josh can often be found out for a walk with his family. He also enjoys cooking, listening to music, and (weather permitting) riding his bicycle or digging in his vegetable garden.
The secretary position is open at this time. If you'd like to apply, please call or email the church for more information.
