Since August 2017, Josh has brought his love of music-making and his passion for teaching to PAS kids of all ages, serving as the primary music educator, songleader, and prayer leader for Penn Family Early Childhood Center, Young Family Education, and Congregational School, as well as the director of the PAS Youth Choir, Teen Rock Band, and Teen A Cappella ensembles.
Both Josh and his wife Vanessa Harper have enjoyed becoming a part of the warm and welcoming PAS community.
