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.

Josh grew up in Alabama; studied theology, ministry, and the arts at Central Bible College (now Evangel University) in Missouri; in 2011, helped to found Transit Assembly, a house-church network based in Seattle; and in 2014 helped to launch and develop New Hope Community Church, formerly CityReach Johnstown, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, where he is currently based.
