Friday Feature: Josh Caldwell

Meet Josh Caldwell. Here he is with his awesome family- Staci and Moses. He is our Manager of Partnerships and Involvement. Basically, that means he is responsible for connecting and involving churches to all aspects of Lifelines ministries. A big job! Get to know Josh a little better below:

How did you first get involved in orphan care? My family has always had a heart for children around the world. My wife and I had been praying for our involvement in ministry. In 2008 we spent several weeks at a orphanage in Guatemala. There, God opened our eyes to orphan ministry through James 1:27. During our time in Guatemala we felt called to adoption. This is where we first began the process of adopting our first son.

How did you get to Lifeline? Through our process of adoption we built strong relationships with the staff at Lifeline and felt led to pursue orphan ministry full time. Then we began talking to people at Lifeline about being on staff.

What is your favorite thing about working at Lifeline? Everyday is centered on the gospel and caring for orphans.

How long have you been at Lifeline? I have spent 3.5 years on staff, but technically, I have been a part of the lifeline family for 6 years due to the adoption of our first son, Moses.

Tell us about your feeling for the upcoming national championship? Simply put, Alabama is going to dominate the Clemson tigers. Roll tide.

What is a little known fact about you? In college I held the school records at Samford University and Bevill State Community College for shot put. I also competed against a gold medalist and world champion shot putter.
