Josh Tallent was born in Gainesville Florida in July of 1980. Raised in a Christian Home, Bro. Josh was led to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ by his older brother Jason, at 7 years of age.
Even under the influence of a Christian home and Christian parents, Bro. Josh found himself in the “far country” in his late teenage years and throughout college. Due to his father’s cancer diagnosis, Bro. Josh would visit his parents to help with things his father could no longer accomplish. His parents expected his church attendance while staying with them, and while under the clear teaching of God’s Word, Bro. Josh began to be convicted of his lifestyle.
It was at this time that Bro. Josh rededicated his life to the Lord, and gave up the “prodigal” lifestyle he was leading.
Bro. Josh met his wife Jennifer at their church in Gainesville in early 2004. They were married in 2007, and had their only daughter Hannah in 2009. God used the ministry in Florida to greatly influence and draw them both closer to the Lord.
In March of 2014, Bro. Josh surrendered to the call on his life to be a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While serving as a layman in his church in Florida, Bro. Josh attended and graduated the Gainesville Baptist Church School of the Bible.
In October of 2016, Bro. Josh came on staff at Trinity Baptist Church, to further his knowledge of the Bible, and engage in practical ministry training. He is currently working with the Music Ministry and our Crew 252 Children’s ministry.
Pastor Steven Giordano works in developing Bro. Josh in different areas of the ministry, to prepare him to be sent out by Trinity Baptist Church, as a Pastor of a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching, and Bible Practicing Baptist Church.
