Joshua Strader

Pastor of Connections

Joshua came to HFUMC in 2010. He recently was licensed as a local pastor and became our pastor of connections. In this role, he helps people find their next steps in connection to Christ and one another. He spearheads our outreach and orientation to newcomers, as well as organizes our adult discipleship group ministry. As a member of our pastoral staff, he also assists with worship leadership, teaching, and working alongside our awesome family ministry staff.


Joshua loves his morning quite times with the Lord over the day's first cup of coffee, wrestling with his adventurous boys (Gabriel, Alistair, and Asher), finding new favorite restaurants with his wife Abby, exploring the national parks, hunting, and fishing!
