Cliffdale Christian Center is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Pastor Josh has spent his life in ministry. Raised on the mission field of Haiti, Joshua has ministry and adventure in his blood. Serving along side his father, Emory Goodman, for almost 5 years of mission work in Haiti, instilled in him a sense of adventure and purpose for the Kingdom.
When the family returned to the states in 1985, Joshua continued to partnered with his father as they built Cliffdale Christian Center, a thriving multi-racial, multi-cultural church of believers that started from a small home gathering.
At the young age of 18, Joshua becoming the youth pastor of Cliffdale and also served as a short-term missions leader on several outreach mission trips to Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Belize.
After building a 100+ member youth group, Joshua felt the call to plant a church on a local college campus. He, along with several families, began "Pursuit" church and he successfully pastored the congregation for 4+ years.
In 2012, Joshua's father, Emory, desired to step aside as senior pastor to pursue his love for the mission field once again. So he asked Joshua if he would "return home to Cliffdale" and assume the reigns of the senior pastor position. Of course Joshua said yes and in 2013, Pursuit Church and Cliffdale Christian Center merged as one congregation under the banner of Cliffdale Church and Joshua was set in as Senior Pastor. He continues to lead the congregation forward in adventures, outreaches, and missions!
Joshua has been married to the love of his life, Amber, since 1995 and they have 6 children. Only 2 of the children remain home as three have now married and one is in college. They are also blessed with 2 grandchildren and still counting.
