Joshua Wilson is the Worship Pastor at Mountainview and is responsible for overseeing the musical and creative elements that go into the weekly services. He strives to create an environment where everyone on his team is heard and valued. Worship planning takes a lot of intentionality, and he invests a lot of time in selecting songs that relate to his musicians, in addition to transposing music to fit the range and abilities of his vocalists. Every member of the team is essential to lead worship. He is committed to helping others find their voices as worship leaders rather than being the sole leader himself. His favorite thing about MV is that you can come as you are and belong because the people know how to love one another. Romans 8:28 is his favorite verse, which says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”. The story of Paul’s conversion is also a favorite because it shows that God can use anyone for His glory.
Josh grew up in Merced, CA and moved to Oregon in September of 2010. He and his wife have been married since 2015 and have a beautifully blended family with six children: Vanessa (21), Blake (18), Chloe (16), Nevaeh (15), Ava (11), and Titus (6). He has 15 years of experience leading worship for adult and student ministries, and participated in worship bands featured on TV, been on a West Coast Tour, and performed at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.
