Josh and Laura Morgan

Josh is our Lead Teaching Pastor, overseeing the overall discipleship process at Wapato. He and Laura have been married for 16 years and have three cute little daughters. They met while attending the same church she grew up in, Sandy Baptist Church. Prior to coming to Wapato, Josh was a youth pastor at Sandy Baptist and ministered there for about 9 years. Laura worked for social services for 16 years before recently stepping down to focus her energy on being a full-time mother. As a family they enjoy spending time together reading, praying, hiking, camping, and biking. Josh and Laura love coffee and conversation but most of all anything that contributes to building a multi-generational family team on mission. More than anything they want to see their children's children joyfully following Jesus as their Lord.
