Josh Donato

Student Pastor

My name is Josh Donato and I am 23 years old. I have been involved in student ministry in some capacity for the last decade plus. When I was in youth, I heard God’s calling on my life to be a student pastor.  Ever since then, that’s what I’ve tried to achieve, and have been given a God fulfilled passion for students. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelors of Business Marketing. 

Overall, I am very excited to live out my calling that God has placed on my life and to help make student disciples for the future church. There is nothing I would rather do than to motivate and encourage students to live out their lives for Christ. 

 “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21
