Josh Via is a worship leader and songwriter from Raleigh, NC where he serves at Journey Church as the worship pastor. In addition to his responsibilities at Journey, Josh leads worship for camps and conferences around the southeast. He holds a B.A. from North Greenville University, and an M.Div. and D.Min. from Southeastern Seminary. His doctoral work focused on the convergence of worship, discipleship, and mission. During his studies he developed an intentional discipleship strategy for worship teams and groups of artists focused on missional engagement. Josh also works closely with his dad’s ministry, World Reach Partnerships to help take the gospel around the world. You can check out his ministry at wrpartners.org for more information.

Josh has been married to his best friend, Tasha Joy, since 2002 and together they are raising five crazy little humans to be world-changers (Areyna Joy, 13, Ezekiel Cohen, 11, Alethia Grace, 9, Micaiah Joel, 8, and Jude Warren, 6).

If you happen to be looking for a ministry with which to partner financially, we are always looking for help to fund on-going mission opportunities, recording/worship projects, and various discipleship and evangelism-oriented materials. The ministry, therefore, operates under the umbrella of Rick Via World Reach Partnerships, a 501c3 tax-exempt non-profit organization. To ensure accountability to our supporting churches, individuals, and other partners, we make it a priority to maintain complete financial transperency and integrity. In addition to the financial filings required of non-profits by the U.S. government, we submit to a regular audit by Ribble & Francisco Accounting, Inc.
