Josh was saved at the age of eight, and at the age of ten, Josh surrendered his life to be a missionary. Josh graduated with a bachelors in missions at West Coast Baptist College, where he met Bethany.
Bethany was raised in a Christian home and was saved at the age of five. She surrendered her life to the Lord as a senior in high school. She graduated college with an elementary education degree.
Josh and Bethany have been called to the island of Ireland. God has given them a burden to see people born again, discipled, and organized into indigenous, independent Baptist Churches. They are excited to begin their ministry in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland and to learn from Pastor James Wilson at Derry Baptist Fellowship.
The Furans are sent out of Franklin Road Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee under Pastor Mike Norris.
