Joshua & Denise Steward



Joshua was born in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, and has been married to his wife Denise since 1998. They have four children; Connor, Chloe, Clark, and Catherine.


Joshua felt the heavy conviction of the Holy Spirit in his life and accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of 6 years old when his mother led him through the bible at their home in Michigan. As a freshman in college at Ashland University, Joshua cried out to God and committed to live for the Lord and develop a personal walk with God repenting of his living “as the world does” for a time.

Ministry Training

After the birth of their four children, Joshua and Denise felt convicted to serve in their local church and began serving in the high school class at the Canton Baptist Temple. After a couple years he prayerfully considered and accepted the position of middle school director. Soon after, Joshua felt the call to full time missions during a missionary conference.

Church Ministry

The Steward’s served for several years in local church ministry at the Canton Baptist Temple before God’s call to Ireland.

Missions Today

Arriving on the field in The Republic of Ireland on January 27, 2014, Joshua & Denise and family came in support of Bob & Marilyn Hutton and the existing ministry in Mallow. Joshua took over as senior pastor at Mallow Bible Fellowship on September 6, 2015. The ministry is looking to become established in the eyes of the Irish with a permanent building. They also look forward to seeing the first disciples from the discipleship program begin to disciple others themselves.
