Huang FamilyJoshua Huang – Assistant/Youth Pastor

Born and raised in Iowa, Pastor Joshua was brought up in a family that placed a high priority in ministry. Pastor Joshua's grandpa served in pastoral ministry for over four decades in Iowa, his parents were short-term missionaries in the Philippines when Joshua was a baby, and his parents prayed his whole life that God would call him into ministry.

Having been saved at the age of 5, Joshua was baptized at the age of 7 and became an active member in his home church, Faith Baptist Church in Mason City, IA. While camping at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp at the age of 13, he made the decision to follow God wherever He would lead. Eventually that decision led him to Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary in Ankeny, IA. While at Faith, he had the opportunity to serve in churches of various sizes, including a rapidly growing church in Ames, IA and a small church plant in Bennington, NE. God also brought along opportunities for him to serve in Brasil for two summers.

After graduating from FBBC&TS in 2016, God led Pastor Joshua to Lighthouse Baptist after over a year of praying and meeting with Pastor Bjokne. Some of his main emphases on staff include children's and youth ministry, music, missions, and technology. In 2019 Joshua married Alyssa, a former classmate at FBBC&TS.

Joshua and Alyssa have two children, Baby Jadon and Baby Jocelyn.
