The Rev. Josh Hosler, Rector

Pastor Josh was called to Good Shepherd in July 2018. He has been an Episcopal priest since 2014 but also served in Episcopal churches as a layperson before then. In addition to his work among us at Good Shepherd, he has served regionally in youth ministry, campus ministry, as co-chair of the Diocesan Commission on Liturgy and the Arts, on the board of the St. Mark's Cathedral Foundation, and as a regional clergy representative to the Diocesan Council. Josh enjoys being married and raising a teenager, keeping up with far-flung friends on social media, singing, composing church music, and chronicling the history of popular music in streaming playlists.
