My name, as you may have already realized, is Josh Cordray. To quote Bill Cosby, “I was born when I was very young.” Now, a number of years later, I serve as the Pastor of Oakwood Church in Taunton, England. My wife Elspeth and I have been married for more than thirteen years now. We have five children named John, Micah, Shoshana, Barnabas and Isaac. In November of 2016 we hope to welcome our sixth child into the family!
As a pastor in the Apostolic Church, I serve in my local congregation. Preaching is one of my main activities and I like to proclaim the Word of God to people in fresh and relevant ways. There is a lot of strain and unrest in the United Kingdom right now and I am privileged to work as the Parliamentary Liaison Officer for the Apostolic Church as well. In this role I travel into London regularly to meet with people who can help the Apostolic Church to expand its work and influence in the political life of the UK.
Mission and evangelism are a very important part of the Christian life. In the past, I have traveled to Mexico, Ghana, Switzerland, Denmark and Hungary as part of my involvement in mission work. Currently, I am working in partnership with men from both Hungary and Tennessee. Together we hope to grow the Kingdom of God and the Church of God in the USA, the UK and Europe.
I hope you can read some things here and be blessed by them!
