Growing up in a home with a single mom and four siblings, Josh Walsh knew what it was like to not have enough. His mother struggled to put enough food on the table and used food bank services to help meet their needs for several years. When he was a child, a lady knocked on the door and invited Josh and his siblings to the AWANA children’s program at her church. In that program, Josh and his four siblings came to know, love and serve Jesus.
As an adult, that has been Josh’s desire, to help others know, love and serve Jesus. He’s been in vocational ministry for the last 14 years, as a youth pastor at two different churches in Southern Ontario and as the Regional Director of Development for Ontario for AWANA.
Last week, Josh began a new role as the Mission Centre Supervisor. This ministry is “near to my heart,” Josh says, “the food bank was a place that helped in my family’s struggle. I want to see people released from poverty and inspired to move forward.”
Stop by the Mission Centre Tuesday to Thursday from 9:00am to 4:00pm or Fridays 9:00am-12:00pm to welcome Josh to the team!
