Josh Williams - Youth DIrector
What’s your story?
I grew up in Pawtucket R.I. and was born and raised in the church. My parents got me heavily involved in youth ministry despite my protests. Soon I was helping where I could and eventually took international missions. God first gave me a desire for missions and then a passion to reach teens and disciple them. I attended Zion Bible College before finishing my degree at Southeastern University in Florida. Over the years God has blessed me with the opportunity to work with some amazing staff and teens.
I’ve been married to my amazing, artistic, and caring wife Melissa for 7 years. We met each other through a Christian online dating site (seriously). We don’t have any kids yet but have 2 cats and a dog.
Sports or arts?
I grew up in New England so I follow the Boston Red Sox and am a big fan of the New England Patriots (don’t hold it against me). I also love Van Gogh and Disney.
So Many!! I love C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Francis Chan, and Donald Miller. I also enjoy reading a bit of fantasy books like the Shannara Series.
I grew up on comics so I love the Marvel/DC movies. I like a lot of older movies as well, Goonies, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Jurassic Park.
You secretly enjoy?
I love making model vehicles and working with puzzles. I find it’s a great way to relax. My wife and I are big board game players as well.
