Josh joined the Bethel Music Collective in 2014 as a worship leader and songwriter. He began his journey with worship in North Carolina where he was a worship pastor for 10 years before moving to Redding, California. Josh loves writing corporate worship songs for the global church, and his music is an expression of who God has been for him in every season.
Josh’s newest single “Let the Redeemed,” released in the summer of 2019 and highlights God as a Deliverer who leads us out of the desert. Josh released “Stand in Your Love” in August 2018 which is also featured on Bethel Music’s latest album VICTORY (2019). This song reached #2 on Christian Billboard charts, garnering Josh’s first nominations for the 2019 K-Love Awards in the Breakout Single of the Year, and Worship Song of the Year categories. Josh is also featured on Bethel Music’s first Spanish album Bethel Music En Español (2019) singing “Adorar Sin Cesar” and “En Ti Estoy Firme.” In May 2017, Josh released his debut solo album with Bethel Music titled The War is Over, and his song “Praises” is featured on Bethel Music’s album Have it All (2016). Both “Praises” and “You Deserve It All” (from his solo project Rivers), have become popular worship anthems among churches around the world.
As a worship leader Josh enjoys creating space for people to feel seen, encouraged, and invited into intimacy with God where true peace and hope is found. Josh lives with his wife Sheila and their two children in Redding, California and continues to tour domestically and internationally.
