Josiah Spence

Director of Men’s Ministry

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

After receiving Christ as a young adult, Josiah walked into Hope Markham in Summer 2012 searching for a local church that proclaimed the Word of God boldly and longed to make disciples.  He became a member shortly after in the Fall, and joined the Men's Ministry to grow in the grace of God.

After graduating Teacher's College in 2013, Josiah followed the Lord's lead to Nunavik, Quebec to teach and live in a northern Inuit community called Quaqtaq.  He worked at the local school as a Secondary Teacher, and was a lay speaker at Quaqtaq Christian Fellowship.

After two years of serving the Lord up north, Josiah returned to Hope Markham in 2015 eager to serve and advance the kingdom of God.  Since then, he has been active in Hope Markham's Ministries, and has a passion for teaching God's Word and seeing His promises fulfilled in the lives of His people.

Josiah resides in Scarborough with his wife, Merit, and their son, Elias.
