Joshua Livingston

Executive Director

As Executive Director of pureHOPE, Josh focuses on relationship building, vision, and expanding the message of pureHOPE. Josh joined the team after serving for years as a board member and champion of pureHOPE.

Josh felt called to ministry at the age of 13 and has been in and around professional ministry his entire life as his family started Central Church in Charlotte, NC nearly 40 years ago. Growing up in church gave him many opportunities for outreach, mission trips and leadership. He attended Lee University to pursue this ministry calling, and there he captained the baseball team, majored in Broadcasting, and minored in Bible. He has served in some form of ministry ever since—from church planting to pastoring to leading worship. Most recently Josh worked as a business advisor for two financial institutions, and then as a Donor Advisor for KLOVE/Air1 Radio Networks.

What brings Josh the most joy is his family. He has been married to his beautiful wife Kate for 16 years and they have one teenage son and one tween-age daughter. You might see Josh leading worship at Central Church or out on a golf course or tennis court.
