Youth & Community Outreach Minister
After an extensive search and interview process, Payson Park Church has found and hired our next YCOM – Youth & Community Outreach Minister!
Joshua Lunde-Whitler has a PhD in Christian Education. Joshua’s calling has been centered around helping today’s churches thrive as intergenerational communities of love and faith that spread justice and compassion in the world.
Over fifteen years he has pursued this call in a variety of settings: as a youth pastor in southern California, as the founder and chaplain of a community for the homeless, teaching children and adults as an associate pastor in Texas, as a youth retreat leader, as a commissioned pastor for a small church here in central Massachusetts, etc.
Beginning this September 2022, Josh will be leading faith formation for our youth, including children of all ages; and connect our youth in strong outreach to our neighbors in need.
Josh & Amy are pictured here with their son.
