Pastor Joshua Lovens was born in Anderson, Indiana, and was saved in 1991 while attending a church service where a missionary preached about hell. His family later moved to Parkersburg, West Virginia, where his father took a pastorate, and this is where he would spend most of his developmental years.
He was called to preach in 1997 at 15 years of age. The Lord began to give him a burden for revival in our country, and at the age of 16, he, along with a couple of friends, began to hold revival meetings. Through the Holy Spirit they were able to see many people saved and many lives changed.
Pastor Lovens attended Bible college at Providence Baptist College, a ministry of Northwest Bible Baptist church in Elgin, IL. It was there he met and married his wife of 13 years, Nichole.
During his senior year, the Lord led him and his wife to New Heights Baptist Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to serve as Assistant / Youth Pastor. He served there for seven years, and in 2012, God called him to Pastor the people of NorthLight Baptist Church.
The Lovens family consists of four beautiful children, Emma, Leanna, Haddon and Levi.
