Josh Bowers and his wife Emily have been serving the Lord in ministry of various forms for the last 15 years. Josh was a pastor in the Northwest US for 8 years at Fresh Life Church with Levi Lusko. He was there from the beginning and was a campus pastor, campus planter, and lots of different roles over the years as the church went from 14 people the first Sunday to thousands of people across 15 locations in the northwest US. Josh and Emily felt called to pursue a church plant in a large city in 2016 and this journey led them to Detroit. He has been a speaker at conferences, churches and events and loves to preach messages from God's Word.


  • Josh and Emily have been married for 4 years and have their first child, London this past spring of 2019. They absolutely love being parents and excited for this new season as a family. Josh and Emily see potential in people and want to invest in them to see them become all that God wants for them to be. Josh and Emily are a part of a couple of church planting networks.

    ARC is a church planting network with nearly 800 churches around the globe. They provide coaching and support and have a 93% success rate. Josh was trained in ministry at Calvary of Albuquerque with Pastor Skip Heitzig and continues to learn and grow as the Lord works in His life.



    Cross & Anchor is proud to partner with the SEND network to see churches and Gospel work multiplied through Detroit.
