My name is Josh Dermer.  I’m a sinner who, by God’s mercy alone, has been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and is continually growing in grace.  I’m happily married to my wife Hollie and I’m a father to five children: Emma, Rylee, Titus, Zoe, and Hannah.  We were married on June 4, 2011 and we currently live  in beautiful Culpeper County, Virginia.  We’re a blended family which has its own challenges and blessings.

I’m a native Virginian and I’ve lived here all my life.  The Lord has called me to be a church planter and I’m looking forward to what He has in store for us.  At some point I will finish my seminary while sitting under the guidance of Godly elders.  I’m learning to be patient, waiting on God’s timing in these matters.

My bride inspired me to start this blog and I hope it turns into something edifying.  I know I’ll have at least one reader.  🙂  The blog is named “kairos,” one of the Greek words for “time” which is used in Ephesians 5:15-16.  It refers specifically to a particular moment or opportunity.  I’m writing here with the view in mind that in the Christian life we should seize every opportunity for Jesus Christ–for His kingdom and for His glory.
