Dr. J. O. Hosler
Dr. Hosler holds two undergraduate degrees in Bible and Pastoral Studies, a B.S. in History from Martin University; an M.A. in History/Political Science from Butler University; and has earned an M.Div. and Th.D from Trinity Theological Seminary. He has served as an adjunct college instructor and full-time pastor since his early twenties. His two greatest academic passions are the clarity of the gospel and the sole authority of Scripture for faith and doctrine. Pastor Hosler, along with his wife Susan, have served at Napier Parkview since October 2002, and came to us from ministries in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Indianapolis, Indiana.
Miles was born in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He lived there throughout his childhood until he and his family moved to Grand Ledge, Michigan, where Miles graduated from high school. He then attended and graduated from Michigan State University, where he met his incredible wife, Allison. Upon graduation, they moved back to her hometown (St. Joseph). Very quickly, they called Napier their home. Miles began working with Berrien County at the Juvenile Detention Center. Just shy of one year later, he was laid off, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Miles feels that God blessed him as he worked in the youth ministry at Napier until he felt called and accepted the position of Youth Director. Miles is excited to let God work through him and is passionate about the gospel, sharing the same love and joy he has received through faith in Christ.
