Josh Garner and his wife, McCall, are so excited about being a part of WDA. Josh has a vision to see young men grow into strong leaders with the character of Jesus. He knows firsthand the role discipleship plays in building a strong foundation of faith and is passionate about seeing others grow in their faith.

Josh serves WDA through his position at Tuckston UMC and involvement in ministries in Athens. His focuses are three-fold. First, he disciples youth and young adults through the programs at Tuckston UMC. Second, he trains young adult small group leaders on discipleship methods so they can work alongside youth in their spiritual journey. Finally, he works with local youth pastors from around Athens to help encourage and support their personal discipleship ministry within their church.
