Josh Walsh - Awana Ministry Development Advocate
For me the will of God is found in the Word of God. God is at the center of everything I do. Through the Awana program I learned what it means to say “He must increase and I must decrease”. Today I attempt to live each day by 1 Corinthians 10:31 which says, “Whatsover ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
I have been involved with Awana since I was a young boy where I made my decision to follow Jesus. I have since served as a volunteer leader, local church ministry Director and as Commander. I enjoy serving the Lord in a ministry that develops children and youth in a culture of dependence on the Spirit with devotion to Scripture memory and long-term discipleship. I love connecting with ministry leaders who are passionate about reaching their own communities for Christ and supporting them through training and leadership development.
I have been happily married to Faith since August 2004. Together we have three amazing kids – Harmony (2011), Simon (2014) and Chastity (2016). She has always been by my side as we have worked together in ministry for 13 years.
Fun Facts - I am a delusional Leafs fan, convinced that the team is rebuilding(again). I also enjoy hockey, running and photography. When I am not at Awana, I can be found with my family or doing one of these things. I am inspired by the genius musical moments found in everything from Handel to Hillsong.
