Josh Miller
Voice, Piano, Guitar @ GFCS, LCCS

Josh had music in his life at every stage of his small-town south Louisiana upbringing. Singing with the radio, marching in drumline, leading with worship teams and gathering with friends to harmonize. By the time he finished high school, he was ready to pursue a degree in music.

In college, his love for music deepened along with his trust in Jesus. In 2018, he founded a band called Levi Square, a group of unique and extraordinary musicians. Levi Square was like a family until Covid.

After graduation, Josh followed God's lead and moved to Fort Worth, Texas. Shortly after starting seminary, God asked him to follow the Call to teach. As a result, Levi Square was reborn as a ministry to teach music to students and families.

Today, Josh continues to invite new students into his teaching ministry, Levi Square. Josh and his lovely bride, Gretchen are on a mission together to bring a love for God through the Arts to students of every age. Josh remains true to the call of teaching students to be excellent, unique and extraordinary in their music.

Josh holds a Bachelors of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership from Louisiana College (2020). Areas of musical training include: guitar, vocal harmony, ukulele, piano and classical voice.
