Our Leadership

Our church is blessed to have a leadership team who is truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry:

Josh Miller

Pastor

Pastor Josh was appointed to serve as Kingsway Baptist Church's Senior Pastor in the summer of 2015. For two years before, he served as assistant pastor to Pastor Jim Fish, our founding pastor. Prior to that, he served as Senior Pastor of New Life Baptist Church in Hudson Falls, NY.


The attributes that best describe Pastor Josh as a pastor are strong preaching, a love of the Word, and a love for people. He has expressed a burning desire to lead a church like Kingsway Baptist Church where biblical views are embraced and encouraged, with members who care about the needs of those around them and who want to connect others to the body of Christ. In addition to preaching the regular services at Kingsway, he & his wife lead the Cross Training Adult Bible study class on Sundays at 9:30am.


He graduated from Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida in 1995 with a degree in Computer Science followed by a Master's of Pastoral Theology from Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana in 2001.
