Introducing our new Small Groups Minister—Josh Beck!


Our leadership is thrilled to have Josh Beck serving part-time as our Small Groups Minister. Josh and his family have called College Heights home for over twenty years. He and his wife, Denise, were married in 1996 and have four children: Rylee, Carson, Dylann, and Hagen. They have recently returned to Joplin after serving as Global Outreach partners in South Sudan for over 5 years. Josh will continue to play a leadership role in the ministry of South Sudan, just from a distance. Before serving overseas, Josh was a fireman for the Joplin Fire Department for 9 years.

Josh has a passion for men and women to grow in faith and obedience in Jesus, and believes one of the best ways discipleship can happen is in small groups. He expressed it this way,

“We have had the honor of seeing God use small groups for discipleship and growth on many continents - and are excited to see how God is going to use it here at College Heights, as we go forward.”

Josh loves his family, is an avid reader, enjoys the outdoors, relishes family hikes, and appreciates a hot cup of coffee!
