Josh de Koning
Harvest San Antonio, TX
Joshua was born and raised in Texas. Though he was raised in a Christian home, he truly came to Christ at the age of 25 while visiting family in Amsterdam. He gives God all the glory for relentlessly pursuing him and continually growing him into a deeper relationship with His Son.
After his conversion, he quickly felt a passion and calling for teaching the Bible and pastoring people.
Josh graduated from Texas State University with a degree in English and is in the M. Div. program at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has worked in various fields including teaching, fire-fighting, farming, and 13 years at the law firm of Lloyd Gosselink.
In 2009, Josh joined the core group of the then-brand-new Harvest Bible Chapel Austin. In 2011 he became an Elder there, and in 2012 he enrolled in seminary. In 2013, Josh was accepted into the Harvest Bible Fellowship Training Center as the planting pastor for Harvest Bible Chapel San Antonio where he currently serves as Senior Pastor.
