Ford Flashback: Football Gave Josh Cossey the Leadership Skills To Lead a Ministry

Norman North Timberwolves Josh Cossey

In the year 2000, Norman North High School was in its infancy. The addition of another high school in Norman had split school loyalties and divided the local talent pool of players. One player, Josh Cossey had grown up a Norman Tiger fan but found himself as the starting quarterback for the Timberwolves his junior and senior seasons. That opportunity gave him the tools to develop his leadership skills to realize his career in ministry.

Now, Pastor Josh Cossey leads his own ministry at Faith Church in Northwest Oklahoma City that he founded in 2010. He is married with four children and stays connected to the game of football by coaching on his son’s football team.
