Josh Park:

A life long resident of Berks and Chester counties, “PJ” began the process of planting Branch Life Church in 2017 with the blessing of East Brandywine Baptist Church, where he and Jenny served for 14 years.  Josh and Jen, have a daughter, Delaney, born November 26, 2008, and a son, Mr. Will, born January 19, 2013. 

PJ teaches the Bible in a way that is engaging, visual, and connects with every listener. Josh cheers for all the Philadelphia sports teams (he is a patient guy), loves his family, is a dog person, and has a healthy fear of sharks.
