Originally a native of Louisville, KY, Joseph spent most of his childhood as the son of missionary parents serving in Cuenca & Guayaquil Ecuador. After spending his childhood overseas, Joseph came back to the United States to finish high school at Trinity High School back in Louisville before attending Wheaton College located in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL. At Wheaton, Joseph studied Business and Economics and felt a strong call from the Lord to pastoral ministries. After finishing at Wheaton, Joseph left to first attend Southern Baptist Seminary before transferring to Biola University in La Mirada, CA where he graduated with a Master’s degree in theology. Since graduating 8 years ago, Joseph has pursued worship leading in Southern California and in the Pacific Northwest. He is passionate about worship and church ministry and is excited to serve at Journey Church. In his free time, you can catch Joseph out running, cooking, writing songs, or exploring the next best coffee shop.
