  • Josh Metts

    Family, Students, Discipleship, and Administrative Pastor


    Josh is married to Kristee and they have 3 wonderful kids, Halee, Gavin and Kylee. He grew up as a missionary kid in the Dominican Republic and has been a pastor kid for most of his life. Josh felt called into the ministry going into college, but was not sure about being a full-time pastor. Over the course of 10 years God continued to give him a sense of a call to serve in full-time ministry while working at UPS and Cessna. God opened the door so wide, it got his attention, so he took the first step in God's call on his life. After serving as our interim student pastor for a year, Josh felt an unresistable call into the ministry. He is passionate about sharing the love of Christ with students, adults and families, he desires for all to come into a personal relationship with God. Josh loves spending time with his family. He enjoys reading, messing around with computers (Mac guy), and just about every sport but especially loves snowboarding, basketball, and volleyball.
