Josh Taylor

Josh and Sarah have three kids—Silas, Judah, and Haven—and have lived in Akron since 2015. They are coffee enthusiasts and have a growing collection of Starbucks mugs. They often are on the go—hiking, running, and biking. But they also enjoy just reading books and listening to music. They find the most fulfillment from building relationships with people in their church and community. 

When moving to Akron, Josh joined the movement of Grace initially as a volunteer and then as a Live It Resident. Josh also spent time leading various youth, worship, and campus ministries before coming to Grace. He feels that all of his experiences in the past have led him to his passion for spiritual formation, biblical community, and equipping leaders. Josh has a bachelors from Cedarville University (2014) and masters from Dallas Theological Seminary (2019).

We hope you’ll find that Grace is somewhere that you can feel comfortable to explore faith, ask questions, grow spiritually, and connect with others. And most importantly, of course, we hope you connect with God!
