Josh is the Senior Pastor of Lakepointe Church, a church with 6 campuses in Dallas, TX. Before joining LakePointe, he served as the senior pastor at The Bridge Church for ten years. His mentor, Steve Stroope of LakePointe Church, was looking for a successor, and Josh developed a close relationship with him, considering him his spiritual father.

In 2018, Steve approached Josh about becoming the senior pastor of LakePointe Church. Initially, Josh and his wife declined the offer as they had plans to retire at their current church. However, Steve knew Josh’s passion for church planting, especially in urban areas, and persisted in his request. After visiting LakePointe Church and experiencing something stirring within him, Josh reconsidered.

After several supernatural encounters, Josh and his wife changed their minds and accepted LakePointe’s invitation. In February 2019, they moved to LakePointe, and for one year, Josh served as the co-pastor with Steve. He eventually became the senior pastor in February 2020.
