Josh Munnikhuysen, PASTOR


Pastor Josh was appointed to Trinity UMC in July of 2018.  

This is his 3rd appointment in the Virginia Conference. He grew up in the hustle of Northern Virginia, met his wife in Richmond, and has served churches in Smith Mountain Lake and rural Southern Virginia.

His call to pastoral ministry was somewhere between "Jonah & Abraham". He was an active lay member of a congregation and paying the bills as a cabinet maker, when in a holy and terrifying season God called him to leave the familiar and serve him. Pastor Josh did the only natural thing and doubled down in the opposite direction. Our Lord is patient and lovingly lead him to leave the familiar and enter an adventure leaving home and woodworking behind.

In his free time, Josh enjoys live music, hiking, and spending time with his wife of 20 years and three teenage kids.
