Josh Kerby grew up in Colorado Springs where he gained a passion for the outdoors through Boy Scouts. He always knew he wanted to work in the outdoors, but never thought he would do wilderness ministry. Josh joined the team at Journey Quest for the 2014 season as a summer guide. He worked as a summer guide until the end of the 2016 season when he joined the full-time staff at Journey Quest. Josh has a passion for sharing with youth and adults about the power of the gospel through wilderness ministry. He loves seeing lives changed as they explore the beautiful creation of God’s handy work.
Josh is joining the team as the Assistant Program Director and Staff Coordinator. He will be overseeing the multi-day trips, backcountry activities, staff recruitment and care, as well as the Journey Quest social media and blogs.
Josh is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys being outside in God’s breathtaking creation with friends and family. He attended Pike Peak Community College where he received certificates in Winter Field Studies and Mountain Field Studies. He is also a Wilderness First Responder and a certified river guide and trip leader. Some of his favorite activities are backpacking, rock climbing, rafting, skiing, and hiking. Josh has always had a passion for cooking and love to explore new recipes and share them with others. When he is not outside or cooking, you will find him playing board games, card games, and enjoying the company of the people around him.
