Dr. Josh Whitehead is Executive Pastor at Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Faith Promise is a church with an extraordinary vision.  The church started in 1995 with 250 people, and has grown to over 7,700 people worshipping each weekend across eight physical campuses and an internet campus.

In 2005, Josh became Executive Pastor after the church had plateaued in attendance. During his twelve years leading, Faith Promise has appeared on Outreach Magazine’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches list five times and was listed as one of the Top 100 Largest Churches in America in 2016. Josh’s goal is to lead by implementing the vision and values of the church through the staff and ministries. He has developed comprehensive hiring, coaching, development and evaluation plans. Most importantly, Josh loves the Church and desires to equip church leaders to effectively impact the world for Christ through their ministry.

Josh also serves as part of the team at Leadership Network, helping churches from the US and Canada who are exploring the topic of multisite.

Josh’s educational background includes a degree in Business Administration from Louisiana State University, a Masters of Divinity degree with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Seminary and a Doctorate in leadership and administration. He married his wife Kim in 2002 and they have 2 children – Hayden and Madison.
