Joshua was working in the litigation industry, when I heard his pastor, Bernie, say that the whole point is the Kingdom of God. He realized he wasn't living what he was saying, so I decided to make a pretty significant change. He's since founded Growability, which helps leaders develop vision and rhythm and community. He also runs two nonprofit organizations that I run, Instruments of Joy and Picture of the Nations.

Bernie was Joshua's pastor, but felt called to leave that position and move his family to Mongolia. After eight years in Mongolia, he started working with an organization to help missionaries raise funds. He's now joined the team at Growability, helping develop leaders.

“The impact of a pastor in a person's life is just almost hard to quantify in terms of the important role that you play by bringing the gospel week after week.”
