JOSH MITCHELL (WC ’18) DISCUSSES THE GOSPEL, THE CHURCH, AND RACE
At a time in our world in which there is so much rhetoric, so many negative interpersonal exchanges, and an overwhelming amount of division, a recent discussion hosted by Grace Polaris Church featuring WC alumnus Joshua Mitchell (WC ’18) comes like a breath of fresh air. A few weeks ago, Grace Polaris pastors Mike Yoder (WC Board Member and WC Parent) and Zac Hess (WC Boys Golf Coach) sat down with Josh for a conversation about the Gospel, the Church, and race.
During his time as a WC student, Josh demonstrated leadership skills and a well-rounded base of talents through his involvement with sports, academic achievement, work with children in after-school care, and his role as a drummer on the Grace Polaris worship team. But what impacted him most in high school is the very thing he discusses in this conversation: a passion for accentuating diversity, bringing unity where there is division, and raising awareness of issues pertaining to race and justice. Burdened with this passion, he and two other WC students founded the student group United Front which bears this mission.
Currently a third-year Social Work and Communications major at The Ohio State University, Josh is still the passionate, thoughtful, articulate, and spiritually-minded man he was becoming as a high school student. Voices like his will certainly help to shape the future of our country and be deeply influential in Kingdom work for the next generation. See and hear the full discussion in this video.
