Pastor Josh Holland
Interim Lead Pastor
Pastor Josh is a southern boy at heart who is slowly developing a midwestern accent. He moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin to pursue a career in television news. Shortly after moving to Wausau, God drew him to Downtown Mission Church and used the church's ministry to dramatically change his life and career plans. Through DMC's ministry, Pastor Josh developed a deep love for the Scriptures and desire to communicate what he sees and encounters while reading them. The Lord has blessed him with a smart and lively wife who is also pursuing ministry by working on her Masters in Theology. When Pastor Josh isn't preaching and shepherding, he likes finding outlets to release competitive energy like playing basketball, ultimate frisbee, spikeball, and pickleball.
