With 13 years in the human resources field, half of that time was spent in the private sector, and half working in Department of Defense contracting firms. Across a wide spectrum of industries and human resource disciplines, Josh learned of the opportunity to blend his HR experience with his background in ministry and love of missions with EMI. He has been with EMI since 2014.
Josh's first taste of international missions came through several short-term mission trips in junior high, high school, and college. He also was blessed to experience vocational ministry while teaching at a Christian high school in Southern California. These days, aside from the ministry of EMI, Josh loves being involved at his local church, serving on the tech team, prayer team, and as an elder.
Josh's wife Wendy, serves as the Director of Finance at Hope & Home, a foster care agency in Colorado Springs. Married in 2001, Josh & Wendy have lived in Colorado Springs since 2007. They have two awesome kids, Connor (born 2004) and Cosette (born 2006).
