Josh Wagner | Pastor

Josh grew up in a church his dad pastored in Joliet, Illinois, and has felt called to be a pastor since his teenage years. Over the last decade, he’s served as a worship pastor while the call to plant a church slowly stirred within him. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Illinois Springfield and a master’s degree in divinity from Wesley Seminary. Josh and his wife Nonni were married in June 2007 and have four children. Before children, Nonni utilized her master’s in music education as a music teacher. These days, Josh and Nonni greatly enjoy living the multiethnic life (e.g. making curry dinners for their friends) and raising their 4 kids together.

Tony Anderson | Worship Leader

Tony has a huge heart for worshipping Jesus and helping people enter into an intimate relationship with Him through worship.

Born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana, Tony grew up attending a Methodist church and It was there that God put worship leading on his heart. He spent lots of time behind a microphone and guitar over the ensuing years in various venues, but it wasn’t until 2015 when he married his wife Janelle and moved to Indianapolis, that God’s plan for him as a worship leader began to come to fruition.

Tony was leading worship at Crosspoint Church, in Fishers, IN, when he met Pastor Josh. The Lord made it clear that he and his family were being called to be a part of launching United City Church. Tony, Janelle, and their daughter, Charlie, joined the launch team in the spring of 2018.
