About Josh

The Waugh Blog (pronounced wah-blahg)


I am Josh.

I grew up in Spring Hill, Florida (just north of Tampa, and yes, by the mermaids in Weeki Wachee). I was the ‘son of a preacher man’ and grew up in the church. Being one of four kids in my family, I was your stereotypical middle child until my youngest brother came along. Family means the world to me.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ.

At a young age, I gave my life to Jesus. I continue to grow in my faith and seek to live my life with an eternal perspective and God as the leader of my life.

I am a husband.

In high school, I started dating a sweet girl named Susie. She was cute. 6 years later we were married! Who said high school sweet hearts don’t make it?

Susie is my best friend, biggest fan, number one supporter and my sister in Christ. I love her so much. I don’t know where I would be without her.

I am a father.

As of March 2019, we were blessed with our third baby girl. All girls! The Lord apparently wants me to be Daddy to those girls.

Susie and I also experienced a miscarriage in 2018, that is the year we started the adoption process. We believe adoption is a part of our story and one day, we will find the child God has for our family.

I am a pastor.

Growing up, I knew I’d be a pastor. I mean, that’s what my dad did so I was supposed to do that too, right? Through high school and college I loved music, student ministry and preaching.

After serving as a youth and college pastor for several years, I began my journey as a full time worship pastor. Never thought I would be a worship pastor. But, I love to worship Jesus… and I love pastoring people. It was a perfect match.

I received my Bachelors in Religion with a concentration in congregational studies from Samford University… Sam, not Stan. Now, Susie and I live in Tennessee where I serve as the Associate Worship Pastor for First Baptist Church of Hendersonville.
