Josh Crouch

Next Gen Pastor

Sam and I have been married since Aug. 2018 and we are Hoosiers through and through.  Sam and I both grew up in Kokomo, IN and graduated from local  high schools there. I am a graduate of Word of Life Bible Institute and Clarks Summit University in Religious Studies while my wife graduated from Grace College to become a Special Education teacher. We have two dogs in which get spoiled very much and their names are Chloe and Pork-chop.  Our desire is to see the great commission come to fruition in the local church and to become the hands and feet of Jesus. God has burdened my heart for the next generation and to see them come to know Jesus fully and live a life in accordance to having a relationship with Him. If you see us, come say Hi!
