About Josh Renaud

So you want to know a little about me? My name is Josh Renaud. I've been a Petra fan for as long as I can remember, and I've been running this website since 1998.

I met my wife Yoli because of Petra. She was a fan living in Santa Cruz, Bolivia in South America. We were married in 2003, are family quickly grew. We now have four wonderful children.

Since 2004, I have worked at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a page designer. I work primarily in the sports department, but also design news pages as well. In addition to my full-time job, I also have a modest web-design business when I have time.

In the recent past, I have also freelanced for or been employed by the St. Louis Business Journal, ¿Qué Pasa?, and the Public Policy Research Center.

I graduated in Jan. 2003 from the University of Missouri — St. Louis with a B.A. in Communication and a Writing Certificate.

During my time at UMSL, I worked at the student newspaper, The Current. Over the years, I was a reporter, production manager, web editor, and eventually editor-in-chief.

I live in St. Louis but I was born in Texas and lived there for a long time. I consider myself a transplanted Texan and you will find lots of Texas paraphenalia around me.

I've served for decades in the children's ministry at my church, Grace Church — St. Louis. I began in the 2 and 3 year old ministry, which later morphed into the 3, 4, and Pre-K ministry.

I love Star Trek, Texas, Atari computers, Christian ska, reading, writing, bowling, baseball, disc golf, golf, and many other things.

If you'd like to find out more about me, feel free to visit my family's weblog. You can read about our adventures in Bolivia on our weblog. If you would be interested in learning about my design and writing skills, please visit my "business" website where you will find my resume, samples of my work, and much more.

If you'd like to ask me something, you can . Please don't send me email to ask about concert dates or Petra lyrics or other things that you can find here on the website. There's a wealth of information on this site, so if you have a Petra question, chances are it will be answered by looking around here.

Thanks so much for visiting this website! It has been my pleasure to provide Petra fans with all the stuff here. I hope you enjoy it. Don't forget to pray for the band and their ministry, because that's what this is all about.
