For Josh, the role of the church is to create space for people to grow in our relationships with God and with each other. We live into who God created us to be when we are together. If you are looking for a new church home where you can grow in the knowledge and love of our Lord Jesus Christ, come visit Holy Spirit! We would love to welcome you.
