Pastor Joshua, Lead Pastor & Worship Leader
Our lead pastor, Pastor Joshua, came to Lion of Judah in 2005 after a divine/God encounter with Rabbi K.A. Schneider in a men’s clothing store in Toledo, OH. His primary calling is to lead worship at Lion of Judah and believes music has the power to usher in the Presence of God, remove darkness and connect people to intimacy with Jesus. One of his favorite quotes comes from a brain surgeon from Memphis, Tenn., “after 25 years of working on the brain, I still cannot affect people’s minds, the way one simple song can.” God-centered-music (which can be found at Lion of Judah, every service), can and will change your life for the better!

Pastor Joshua can be found preaching, teaching and also handles Lion of Judah’s programming and production for WLMB television, YES FM and PROCLAIM FM radio stations. He has a beautiful wife, Jessica, and two young children, Shiloh and River.

Pastor Joe, Outreach Pastor
Pastor Joe came to Lion of Judah in 2008 while pursuing his soon to be wife, Julie, who had already been attending Lion of Judah. Shortly after, he realized the LORD was calling him to the ministry of preaching and teaching. Pastor Joe currently serves in the ministry of Outreach, Pastoral Care, preaching and teaching. He attends Lion of Judah with his beautiful wife Julie and their two beautiful daughters.
