Minister of Student Lifeoffice: 706-543-1442, x216
Josh Miles is a native of Athens, Clarke County Schools, and Athens First United Methodist Church. Josh got an early taste for life behind the news desk in the fifth grade when he served as a renowned anchor and sports reporter for Barnett Shoals Elementary Television. He went on to play basketball in middle and high school and dreamed of working for ESPN and becoming famous for his sports coverage. Josh completed his Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism at UNC-Chapel Hill and went on to get a Master’s degree in Telecommunications at UGA. During high school and graduate school, Josh was active in youth and college ministry here at our church. In his time at UNC, he served in leadership at the Wesley Foundation. Although his dreams of a career in sports broadcasting have been far surpassed by serving here, Josh remains passionate about college sports and can often be heard singing college marching band fight songs in his office while working. Josh joined the staff of our church in 2013 and loves sharing in the joy of the Lord with his brothers and sisters in Christ, a fact that is evident in his every interaction with both students and staff at our church.
