JOSH SCHWARTZ

Director of Children's Ministry

Ministry isn’t just a theory or set of traditions to Josh Schwartz. It’s about sharing life with people and helping them see Jesus. Josh has a passion for children’s ministry specifically.

As Director of Epic’s Children’s Ministry, Josh’s main goal is to point every kid to Jesus. Part of that is helping them learn how to talk about Jesus and incorporate Biblical teachings into everyday life. He also manages and trains Children’s Ministry volunteers.

"I love seeing a kid make a Jesus connection from a Bible story and then realize how that will actually change something specific they are going to do the next week," says Josh. "I hope more than anything, that kids see how Jesus ACTUALLY changes lives.... not just theoretically. This will then spark a desire to begin talking about him naturally, rather than keeping that to themselves."

Josh and his wife, Stacy, have been married nine years and have four wonderful children – Cambria, Emerson, Brylee, and Lucy.
