Welcome to Woodmen Lindstrom Family:
Worship with us as we welcome our new Lead Pastor of Teaching & Vision in services October 4/5.
JOIN US THE WEEKEND OF OCT 17-19 FOR A WELCOME RECEPTION:
After an extensive and thorough search process, Woodmen is excited to welcome Josh Lindstrom as our new Lead Pastor of Teaching and Vision.
Josh is a gifted teacher and trusted shepherd with an 18 year track record of faithful and engaging church leadership. He comes to Woodmen after completing 10 years of fruitful ministry at Salem Chapel in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Josh first felt the Lord’s clear call to pastoral ministry during his senior year of high school. He earned a degree in music from the University of Western Ontario where he and Kimberly met. Before graduating, Josh accepted the call to become the youth pastor at nearby North Park Community Church.
In 1999 Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago called Josh to be their high school pastor – opening the door for him to complete a Masters Degree in Christian Thought at nearby Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
Josh and Kimberley stepped out in faith in 2004 when they packed up and headed to Winston-Salem, with the blessing of Harvest’s leadership, to plant Salem Chapel. Today the church is a vibrant community of growing believers. Salem has a well-earned reputation for gospel-centered preaching, serving those in need and a thriving ministry to college students.
A passion to share the love of Jesus has also led Josh to be part of mission teams in Europe, Africa and Asia.
Josh and Kim have been married for 16 years and have three boys, Caleb, Jesse and Ezra. He cherishes time with his family and finds refreshment in hiking, football and reading. Although he’s a longtime Green Bay Packers fan, Josh assures us that he’s happy to adopt the Broncos as his AFC football team!
The Lindstrom family has responded to what we all believe is the clear call of God on their lives to join the Woodmen team. Josh’s heart for ministry is the bold proclamation of God’s Word – emphasizing the truth of Scripture and its practical application. His skill and visionary experience in leading people to conform their lives to the life of Christ will help us continue to become the church God desires for Woodmen to be.
We look forward to officially welcoming Josh in weekend worship services on October 4/5, 2014.
