It would be an understatement to say that Josh Whitlow came from a family of pastors, and when Pastor Josh was 16 he too felt God was calling him, like so many before him, into a life of ministry.
Before his fulltime pursuit into the ministry Pastor Josh first had to answer his relentless desire to serve our Country. In 2002 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, and after 2 overseas deployments and participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Pastor Josh came home for good in 2006. That same year he married his best friend and greatest ministry partner, Crystal. They now have 3 beautiful children, Lucy, Josh and Lincoln.
After 8 years of full time ministry and serving at Community Church in Ashburn, Virginia, He and Crystal knew God was calling them to pursue the God sized dream of planting a life giving church. In March of 2014, Pastor Josh and Crystal drove down Broad Street and immediately knew this was their new home. They have completely fallen in love with The City of Richmond, it's people, it’s needs and it’s unimaginable potential. Since then, God has sent several others to be a part of what we believe God is about to do in RVA. This chapter is only beginning; the best is yet to come!
