Meet the Pastor

Rev. Josh McClendon has been a minister since 2007, previously serving the Bethel-Philadelphia Charge in the Rock Hill District, followed by Shandon United Methodist in Columbia. He and his wife, Karen, and children — Kaela, Joella, and Jude — arrived at Pisgah in the Summer of 2018. Karen and Josh met while serving as summer staff at Asbury Hills Camp & Retreat Center.

Rev. Josh grew up in United Methodist congregations throughout South Carolina. His father (Tim) and sister (Narcie) are ordained elders in the UMC. He is an M.Div. graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a B.S. graduate in Civil Engineering from Clemson University. Karen is a Registered Nurse.

The McClendons believe, above all, that their calling is to be a missionary family wherever God calls them to go. If you have any questions or feedback for Rev.
