God recently brought Pastor Beutler and his family to Grace Baptist Church in Washington, Utah in July 2016.
Since their arrival, the church has experienced the first revival meeting and first Vacation Bible School in over a decade, and the church is now supporting missionaries to China, New Zealand, Japan and Africa with a growing membership and a developing discipleship program.
Josh and his wife Anna grew up in the Midwest. They met at Maranatha Baptist Bible College where Josh received his business degree, and Anna received her church ministries degree.
After living in Wisconsin during their first two years of marriage, Josh's retail job was transferred to Mitchell, South Dakota. He worked full time while they both faithfully served in a variety of ministries at Grace Baptist Church of Mitchell, South Dakota. During the seven years living there, the Holy Spirit worked in Josh's heart about serving God full time as a pastor. After much prayer and counsel, they decided God was leading him back to Bible college.
In 2014, the Beutlers moved from Mitchell South, Dakota to Lancaster, California, where Josh enrolled at West Coast Baptist College. In May 2016, he graduated with a degree in Pastoral Theology.
The Beutlers are excited to be here at Grace Baptist Church in Washington, UT, and look forward to seeing what God has in store for our community in the future.
