My name is Josh Bleke. I was born and raised here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have been with my wife for 20 years, since high school, and we have been married for 14 years. We have 2 beautiful daughters... Layla, almost 16, and Mya is 11. I enjoy being an outdoorsman, hunting, fishing, hiking, riding my motorcycle, playing and singing music (especially on our worship team!), and most importantly being a father, husband, and Soldier of God!
My road to faith was a long one to say the least. Various circumstances when I was a child led me to take a long step down the wrong path, and stay there for a while. I was very lost for a long time. I found music at a young age though, and with it and the help of some very important people in my life, I was able to stay just this side of the deep end. I found my faith again at 17, and finally stepped all the way off of the path I mentioned before and began to take faith and the change I desired seriously when my oldest daughter was born a couple of years later. Since then my fire for faith has grown into a 5 alarm blaze!
From there God has completely transformed my life, my families lives, and has brought me to a place in life I never thought I would deserve!!!! I have been blessed to be a part of this church since 2012, graduated in 2015 with a B.S. In Christian Ministry, and now I am in a position to have an impact on our young people! I have a special place in my heart for young people, and my own childhood experience has provided a unique ability to understand them and guide them, helping our young people find and follow Jesus! Whether just interim, or whatever God may have in store, I am blessed to have the chance to pour the love of Jesus into our young people and serve His kingdom in whatever place He needs me!
