Pastor Joshua Watts is a passionate advocate for the Kingdom of God: not only a glorious future hope, but 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.

Ps Josh grew up in Alabama; studied from Central Bible College (now Evangel University) in Missouri and earned a degree in Ministry in the Arts; helped to launch and develop Transit Assembly, a home church network based in Seattle; and now is devoted to raising up and equipping leaders through the ministry of New Hope Community Church, formerly CityReach Johnstown.

As Creative Arts Pastor of New Hope, he is a credentialed reverend in the Assemblies of God and specifically spearheads the music ministry, oversees all media and social media, and leads the branding and marketing arm of the church. His love for graphic design has also led him to resource and empower various ministries via his freelance work.
