Josh joined our staff in December 2013. He is a graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin (B.A. 2003) and of Covenant Theological Seminary (M.Div. 2008). Before coming to Chapin Pres, he served as the RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) Campus Minister at the University of Iowa for 5 1/2 years. Josh was born and raised in Quincy, IL, and he was married to his wife Julie in 2003, who he describes as “God’s greatest gift to me apart from Jesus.” Josh and Julie have two beautiful children, Samuel, and Adelaide. They also have a child they can’t wait to meet whom Jesus called to be with Himself before birth, Jonah Kristy. The Vahles love having friends over for dinner, going for family bike rides, and the South Carolina winters!
