Originally from Toronto, Josh is the founding pastor of Salem Chapel. Josh has a B.A. in Music from the University of Western Ontario and an M.A. in Christian Thought from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He and his wife Kimberley have been married for 11 years and have three sons, Caleb, Jesse and Ezra.
After having served as a youth pastor for eight years, first at North Park Community Church in London, Ontario and then at Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, Josh shifted his ministry focus to serve as the teaching pastor of Salem Chapel in July of 2004. Josh’s heart for ministry is the bold proclamation of God’s Word. Emphasizing the enduring truth of Scripture and its practical application, Josh desires to see God move powerfully among His people.
Josh loves being with his wife, aiming for “dad of the year” and anything that involves water or football. He also spends time reading, writing and asking for another bulldog.
