  • josh book

    Senior minister

    Josh is originally from McDermott, Ohio, and since you probably don’t know where that is, it is close to Portsmouth, Ohio.  He is a 2006 graduate of Kentucky Christian University with a Bachelor's degree in Preaching, and has been involved in ministry since 2003.  Josh has served in churches in Vanceburg, Kentucky, Sciotoville, Ohio, Hillsboro, Ohio, and returned to Kentucky to serve here at Fairview in June of 2022.  Josh is married to his wife Nellie, who is a teacher at Mason County Intermediate School, and together they have three children, Allie, Brady, and Gunner.  Josh enjoys camping and riding side by sides with the family, hiking, hunting, fishing, and of course watching football and cheering on THE Ohio State Buckeyes!  O-H – I-O!

    Josh is the Senior Minister at Fairview and fills the pulpit most Sundays throughout the year.  Josh has a desire to make God relevant in the lives of those who attend or listen online.  Hoping that his listeners will truly know God and not just know about God, he stives to be very application oriented, “What does this mean in my life?”  With that thought in mind, his favorite scripture is James 1:22 which says: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.”
