Leadership Team

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Rev. Joshua Pettit • Associate Pastor – Youth and Family Ministry

Having been through some dark times as a teen, Pastor Josh found his passion in helping other youth through the challenges of life. With his family being very important in his life, he answered the call from God to reach out and minister to all youth and their families to share with them the same love of God that brought him out of his darkness into God’s marvelous light. If you want to know more about his story and God’s saving grace in his life or the ministry he is doing at Woodlands Lutheran Church contact him at 407.469.2525 or through email at pastorjosh@woodlandschurch.com.
