Hey there. I’m Josh.
I figure I’ll take just a moment to answer a few of the immediate questions that you might have right up front:
1. Yes, I used to have hair. Actually lots of it.
2. The short answer is: I lost a bet.
3. Yes, I could grow it back at any point, but I choose not to.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I hope you’ll take a look around.
I do, however, ask that you please remove your shoes.
You see, we just got new carpet.
Thanks for understanding.
Speaking, Teaching, & Training
I’ve spent a lot of my life working with middle school & high school students, and over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to speak to students at camps & conventions all across the country.
Here’s a highlight video from a camp I spoke at in California a few years ago:
And here’s a video from a time I taught a group of the best middle schoolers on the planet:

From time to time, I get to do a lot of really cool stuff with a lot of really cool people. And every so often, someone manages to get those moments on camera. Here are some of my favorites.
Student Ministry Resources
Over the years, I've created a few resources for my friends over at Download Youth Ministry. Here are a few of the ones I’m most proud of:
Check out a few of the reviews that these resources have received so far:
“Super clever… love this!” - Doug Fields (yeah… THAT DOUG FIELDS)
“Good stuff, played super nicely in our JH ministry!“ - Josh Griffin (yeah… THAT JOSH GRIFFIN)
“At first blush this game might not look like much. But it’s one of the most clever games I’ve come across on DYM.” - Jonathan O.
“Easily one of the funniest games I have ever played! Students loved it!” - Jake
But seriously, don’t just take their word for it. Tap or click below to check out all of the resources I’ve created for DownloadYouthMinistry.com:
*Full Disclosure: I do benefit financially from every resource I have placed on the site. I do not, however, receive any income from other resources or the membership.
Team World Vision
My son (Zeke) and I are running with Team World Vision to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in the developing world. Nearly 1,000 children under age 5 die everyday from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. But we believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes.
$50 = clean water for 1 person
Will you invest in the future and provide clean water for 1, 2, 3, or even more people?
