Josh Gosa

Josh GosaJosh has been on board with us since June of 2015 as our Minister to Students. He is originally from Amory, MS where he attended First Baptist Church. After graduating from Amory High School in 2005 and never really establishing a relationship with Jesus, he fell away from the church and into a lifestyle that was far from Christ. In 2008, Josh committed his life to Christ and left the old behind. He transferred from Itawamba Community College to Mississippi State University in 2008 and graduated with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies. While there, he became very active at Calvary Baptist Church and, eventually, became a youth intern. It was during this internship that he felt God calling him into student ministry. While at Calvary Baptist Church, Josh led worship for the youth and college ministries. Josh has served as Minister to Students at First Baptist Church in both Maben, MS and Folsom, LA before being called to serve with us.

Considering his past, Josh’s passion in ministry is to see students grow and develop their relationship with Christ, own their faith, and live it out loud. It’s this desire that drives his urgency of discipleship within student ministry.

Josh is married to Olivia, a Brandon, MS native, and they have the same heart for student ministry and thrive on building relationships with students and their families. Josh and Olivia have been blessed with a son, Ezra, who is energetic and full of life. Both Josh and Olivia enjoy music, the outdoors, Mississippi State athletics, traveling, junk stores, and spending time with family.
