Josh Mills

Associate Pastor of Students & Young Adults
Josh joined the staff in November of 2012, and is part of four generations of Miner Baptist Church. He and his wife Brittney were married on December 30, 2005 and have two little rascals that consume their house with toys, Lawson and Duncan. Josh became a Christian at an early age and answered God’s call to the ministry in 2009. A graduate of Liberty University with a B.S. in education, students and their parents are a major priority in his life. The ministry at Miner Baptist is moving towards a combined-influence model with parents joining forces with leaders to help guide the next generation into life with Christ, not just something to do on Sundays and Wednesdays.
If you show up at Miner Baptist Church as a student, expect to be challenged by Josh to live a life that isn’t typical. He believes that raising the bar for each student is part of his ‘job’ and students that leave the youth department should be ready to BE the church, not just regular attendees. Owning their faith and living it out is part of the measuring stick of ‘success’ in the student ministry.
