Joshua Strader

Pastor of Connections

Joshua came to HFUMC in 2010 and served as our Student Ministries Director for eight years. In 2018 he 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. Joshua spearheads our outreach and orientation to newcomers, as well as organizes our adult discipleship ministries. As a member of our pastoral team, Joshua also assists with worship leadership, teaching, assisting in our Stephen Ministry, and working alongside our awesome family ministry staff.


Joshua loves his morning quiet times with the Lord over the day’s first cup of coffee, wrestling with his four adventurous boys, finding new favorite restaurants with his wife Abby, and exploring all things outdoors. Joshua is an avid fishing/hunting outdoorsman and enjoys exploring new national parks each year with his family.
