Get to know Josh.

I have been in ministry my whole adult life. I interned in faith ministry at Faith CRC in Sioux Center while in College, worked at Rolling Acres CRC as youth director for a year, and volunteered in Pella at my home church of Calvary CRC, working with youth. After that, I was at First Reformed Church in Sanborn and Hartley United Methodist Church, and now I have been at New Life Church for just about a year. I was led to New Life because of their passion for missions, and what draws me here now is their love of God and others.

I started working at New Life the first week of October 2021. My passion is to help people better understand God’s gospel truth. I also am passionate about sharing God’s word with those who don’t know or understand it. I want people to feel welcome here at New Life, knowing that we aren’t perfect but serve a perfect God. I have been married to my wife, Brenda, for 20 years. We have five kids Ashleigh, Kyra, Jacoby, Clayton, and Josie.
