In the spring of 2010, Josiah had a revelation of God’s goodness and his own waywardness. He accepted the grace of God's sacrifice of Jesus and following his conversion experience, Josiah was filled with a passion for being a catalyst for transforming his generation; particularly the young people. He figured that the best way to do this is to follow the example of Jesus and share the message of Christ’s unconditional love. Shortly afterwards, he started a Facebook group called A Generation That Seeks, which became a forum for spiritual conversation, Biblical exposition, and personal counseling via messaging and posting opportunities. Also during this time, he coached junior high and high school sports and was heavily involved in his community. On New Year’s Eve of 2011, he met Alicia Stauffer at an Ohio State/Indiana basketball game.  

A comical misunderstanding turned into a long-

distance relationship and on July 20, 2013 they

were married.

Josiah enjoys taking mission trips with the youth and looks forward to future outreach with them.
