Josh Vincent is married to Cari, who is completely out of his league and has three lively sons--Ben, John, and Jack--who have Viking blood running in their veins. Josh earned his MDiv from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Biblical Languages and Theology after receiving a BA from Mississippi College. He's currently working on a DMin with Phoenix Seminary writing about the relationships between men and women in Judges and Ruth. He teaches Master's level ecclesiology, preaching, and pastoral care through an accredited internship with Phoenix Seminary, leads The Gospel Coalition Arizona, and serves on the board of Hope for Addictions. He has taught on line for Grand Canyon University in the past and continues to speak or debate there occasionally. Internships with Mark Dever through 9Marks and Russ Moore through SBTS have helped shape the way Josh views pastoral ministry. You can access his articles through both 9Marks and The Gospel Coalition. Josh is thrilled to be part of bringing about greater health and fruitfulness at Trinity Bible Church, expericing the growing love of this body, and the palpable sense that our best days are coming.
