Joshua Pillows

Church Musician

Joshua studied music from an early age, beginning with piano at just five. Through his school years he picked up learning the trombone and played in the school bands for seven years, earning multiple awards and marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City his senior year in 2012. After high school he developed an unabating desire for musical creativity and began composing in addition to his prior studies. In 2015 he began taking up the organ as his next instrument and soon found a new passion in it. Over the next few years of disciplined practice he successfully tested and received the Service Playing and Colleague Certifications from the prestigious American Guild of Organists. When not engaged in musical studies Joshua ardently studies apologetics, philosophy, and logic in order to defend the truths of Christianity in hopes that one day he, too, can pass on his knowledge to equip the saints.
