About Marissa & Josh

Josh and Marissa met in their Management 300 class at Eastern Kentucky University in August of 2015. Josh and Marissa had an interesting start because Josh asked Marissa to go hiking for their first date (her favorite activity), and Marissa accidentally put her number in Josh’s phone wrong. Marissa never got a text about hiking and Josh never got a response when he texted the wrong number. Their first date ended up being one of their favorite activities to this day, watching movies and eating out of a tub of ice cream with two big spoons. Throughout college, both were very involved in their campus ministry, Campus Outreach. This is where their love for Jesus, discipleship, and serving grew. Josh and Marissa got married and moved to Nashville where Josh accepted a job as a Project Engineer with a company he did an internship with, and Marissa accepted a job as the Junior High Director with CPC. They are both so happy that the Lord has brought them to CPC and love that they are able to follow Christ in his mission of loving people, places, and things to life.
