Josh White

  • Josh White

Josh White is an evangelist, recording artist, and the founding pastor of Door of Hope, a thriving church community in the heart of Portland, Oregon. Josh lives with his wife Darcy, son Henry, daughter Hattie, and two Westies, Sonny & Baby. Portland is the city where he and Darcy met 23 years ago, while Josh was playing a show with his then Seattle-glam-rock band, Man Ray, at the now-defunct Satyricon night club. Little did they know that, within a few years, their lives would be turned upside down and revolutionized by the gospel of Jesus. Since their entrance into ministry in 2002, Josh has recorded 5 worship albums for BEC (3 under the name Telecast) and 5 for Deeper Well (under various monikers) including Liz Vice’s first album There is a Light.  When not preaching and leading Door of Hope, Josh is enjoying his family, obsessively reading (he actually is just obsessive), writing and recording songs, designing spaces, and currently working on his first book, The Good Death. Josh often refers to himself as the amateur pastor, as in the words of Robert Farrar Capon, “The amateur—the lover, the man who thinks heedlessness a sin and boredom a heresy—is just the man you need. More than that, whether you think you need him or not, he is a man who is bound, by his love, to speak. The role of the amateur: to look the world back to grace.”
