Joshua and Natalie Troyer have been married for three years and just welcomed their first child (a boy, Uriah) into the world in August. The three of them along with their golden retriever, Simba, are living in Woodland Park, Colorado as they attend Charis Bible College. The Lord called them there last year and they said “Yes!” to the call and took a step of faith by quitting their jobs and moving to Colorado to attend Bible school. This is a big step for their family toward pursuing ministry. The Lord has put it on their hearts to do marriage and family ministry as well as discipleship. Joshua has been part of The Well since the beginning and they are eager to move back and get plugged back in here at The Well.
"I was born and raised in Amish country living life and
working a 9-5 job. When suddenly In the spring of
2021 I felt the lord calling me to quite my job. From
there I went into a season of pruning with the Lord
for a few months. The following fall I started a 3
month internship at The Well Winesburg that totally
transformed my life. I recieved my calling from the
Lord during this time and really discoverd the father's
heart for me. Which launched me into what I am
doing today, traveling the world sharing the gospel
of Jesus Christ bringing the light to dark places."
"I was born and raised in the amazing community of Holmes County where I lived the classic small town kids life and loved every second of it. After graduating from High School in 2021 I decided to start working construction and loved every second of it, but I always felt that God had more in store for my life. After going through a rough patch in my life I found the only thing that made me truly happy was spending time with the father and going deeper in my relationship with Him. Through this time of seeking the Lord He called me to Jesus school in Orlando, Florida. The school is teaching me how important it is to sit at the feet of Jesus and not only love on Him but also to receive His love. I feel that this season is giving me a strong foundation in my faith that will prepare me for whatever He has in store for my life in the future."
"Being born and raised in the small town of Amish Country and working a 9-5 job was nothing but a blessing from the Lord, but, He had bigger plans in store for me. He met me in a stage of life where I thought I had my life planned out and He completely wrecked my plans. In this time I joined a 12 week intense evangelism course at The Well, and through this He sparked a hunger in my heart for a deeper love for Him and His people and called me to the big city of Orlando, Florida to attend Jesus School. In this season with Him, He is simply preparing me and taking me into a deeper, more authentic, bridal love with Him and revealing to me His heart."
