Josh and Amber Canizaro

About Pastor Josh

Joshua Canizaro was born and raised in the greater New Orleans area where he began serving as a youth pastor in the summer of 1999. After pastoring in Louisiana for nearly six years, he and his wife Amber felt the Lord moving them to join the team at Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Alabama.

Neither of them knew the miracle that they would be a part of as Church of the Highlands became one of the largest and fastest growing multi-site churches in America.

Pastor Josh has enjoyed pastoring in both Louisiana and Alabama and is most passionate about helping people who feel far from God find hope in a life-giving and fulfilling relationship with Jesus Christ. He also loves serving as a coach for the Association of Related Churches and being a part of the Grow coaching network.

Now after ten years of living away from his beloved family and the city of New Orleans, Pastor Josh, his wife Amber and two children believe that God has placed a calling in their hearts to start a new church in the New Orleans area.

One Hope Church is a part of the ARC and launched in the fall of 2014.
