Josh Drake was born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, and cannot remember a time when he did not love music.  He began singing in his church’s children’s choir in 1st grade and began taking piano lessons at 8 years old.  In 8th grade he began leading worship and joined his youth worship band soon after that.  Josh has also been blessed with several opportunities to travel on missions trips to Barbados, El Salvador, and China.  Sensing a calling to pursue music and creative arts ministry, Josh studied music at Cedarville University in southern Ohio and graduated in May.  He also has a passion for producing short films and videos and enjoys tennis, ultimate frisbee, and camping.  Josh is incredibly grateful for the chance to intern here at Hope Chapel and is excited to see how God uses him here in Maui!
