Meet Chaplain Josh LeRoy

"Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body."
— Hebrews 13:3

Chaplain Josh LeRoy

Greetings! I am so happy to be joining AOPM as the Chaplain for Orange Correctional Center. Before coming to OCC, I spent five years as Chaplain at Randolph Correctional Center in Asheboro, NC. I have also served as pastor of a small rural church in Seagrove, NC, and I spent nine years as the director of an outreach ministry called The Bridge Project. I was ordained by The Wesleyan Church in 2004.

I am a graduate of Southern Wesleyan University and Asbury Theological Seminary. My greatest joy is in seeing deep transformation begin in the hearts of individuals, and gradually work its way to the outside. My wife Laura is an elementary school teacher, and together we have two children. Anna Grace is 16, and Ellis is 13.

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,”

— Isaiah 61:1
