Pastor Joshua and Anna Gresham

Josh & Anna Gresham\r\n\r\nPastor Joshua was born and raised in West Virginia. Growing up in a Christ-centered atmosphere, he knew at the age of fourteen that he was called to the ministry. Joshua graduated from Teays Valley Christian School in 1997. He continued his education at Marshall University, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. During his college years, Joshua was actively involved in several campus ministries. This would lay the foundation for the birthing of Campus Flood, the first ministry that Joshua and his wife Anna began in 2004.\r\n\r\nHe met his wife, then Anna Huffman, in the fall of 2002. They connected as friends right away, and by the following spring they were in love. Anna is the daughter of Darrell Huffman, pastor of New Life Church in Huntington, West Virginia. Soon after meeting Anna, Joshua began volunteering at New Life Church, and jokes that he went from lowering angels in the Easter play, to playing the bass guitar in the worship team, to marrying the pastor’s daughter. Joshua and Anna were engaged in the fall of 2003, and were married on June 26, 2004. They soon added to their family, and are now abundantly blessed with three handsome sons and one beautiful daughter. Caedmon, Cohen, Colton and Carly are sure to keep the Gresham home on the move!\r\n\r\nPastor Joshua is an avid hiker and all around outdoorsman. He enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, and anything that involves sleeping on the ground in a tent. He has hiked the Grand Canyon 9 times, climbed Mt. St. Helens, and has gone from the highest point of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park to the lowest point at Death Valley in Nevada. Joshua incorporates traveling in his ministry life as well; taking college groups and church groups along with him to enjoy this journey we call life. \r\n\r\nPastor Joshua’s ministry career began in May of 2004 when he started working at New Life Church, editing and directing in the media department. He then went on to begin a very successful campus ministry called Campus Flood at Marshall University. Campus Flood is still active today and has branched out to other colleges around the east coast. During that time Joshua and his wife took over as the youth ministers of New Life Church, where they ministered weekly to 6th through 12th grade students in Regeneration Youth.\r\n\r\nIn 2008 Pastor Josh and Anna felt led to plant a church in Burlington, NC. Following that leading they started Trailhead Church on September 28, 2008 in the Ramada Inn Convention Center. Trailhead eventually moved into the Holly Hill Mall in Burlington, and in 2010 moved once more to Graham. Trailhead is a place where vision is set, life is changed, and navigation toward God’s will is the main pursuit. Pastor Josh’s primary passion is to see more and more people come into intimate relationships with Jesus as Trailhead continues to grow in influence in the Triad area and the world. \r\n
