About Josh

Josh Caudill has served as Parish Administrator at Saint John’s since September 2018. Formerly, he has worked at Calvary Baptist Church in Shawnee, Oklahoma, as Youth Minister, and at Redeemer Church in Norman, Oklahoma, where he also served as Youth Minister, in addition to managing the church’s communications and audio, visual, and technical needs. He currently works in places wherever he can find books–which, these days, is at the Cambridge Public Library. He has studied Biblical Languages (Oklahoma Baptist University) and Applied Linguistic Anthropology (University of Oklahoma) and is glad, while living in Massachusetts, to be able to put some of these skills to use for the church.

Josh has run 2 marathons, performed live in concert in 5 states, and enjoys playing Scrabble with his wife, who always wins, even though he has an advanced degree in linguistics.
