Reverend Joshua Watts is a passionate advocate for the Kingdom of God: not only a glorious future hope, but also the active, here-and-now reign of Jesus that ushers in life over death, abundance over lack, and health over sickness. He has seen no shortage of the transforming power of Jesus all around the world and locally, as people have embraced Jesus’ resurrection and the establishment of His reign in their lives.
Originally from Alabama, Josh studied theology, ministry, and the arts at Central Bible College (now Evangel University) in Missouri, and has been credentialed through the Assemblies of God since 2011. So far, he has helped to found and develop two church plants: Transit Assembly in Seattle (2011), and New Hope Community Church in Pennsylvania (2014). Currently he serves as the Worship Pastor at Oakland Church in Johnstown, PA, where he remains enthusiastic about discipleship, faith, and the Kingdom.
