I have some bittersweet news to share with our Portland & PNW friends & family. Our home at 5912 N Mississippi Ave just went on the market yesterday! It will be showing by appointment through the weekend, with an open house on Saturday from 11 to 2 (we won't be there, but our realtor will greet you πŸ˜‰). If you're in the market for an historic home, close in, with permitted ADU...this could be the one for you! - We've cherished our 8 years here in Portland, but now, we're headed back to the heartland for this next chapter of our life. God willing we'll be purchasing a 26 acre farm outside of Bloomington, Indiana, where I'll continue writing new songs and raising my family.

Jane SparksCONGRATS!! I live in Portland (and came to faith at DOH) but have family in Brown County/Lake Lemon we could easily move back there soon. Our 2 kids are about same age as your first 2. Bittersweet for sure, but VERY personally inspiring to hear this news on top of just hearing your interview on Makers & Mystics today. I'm constantly torn between family and career, we are not artists but your statements about growing your life sustainably totally apply to us. God bless and see you here (or there) soon, man!!!

Emily ChristensenThat is so awesome! Although I no longer attend door of hope, I really cherished the time I spent there and getting to work with your kiddos in the childrens ministry. They are such amazing kids. It was back at the SE location when we did ALL NIGHT prayer that I first heard you sing. My husband and I will forever be fans. Your music and lyrics are a blessing to so many! I'll keep you and your family in my prayers! Many blessings in your next chapter. We'll look forward to future Roseland shows!

Jeremy GilmourBack in February at your Asheville show I was super sad to initially hear that you would be moving away just a few weeks after I was to arrive in the Portland area. I truly hope you'll put on one more show here before you leave. I do wish you all the best though and pray God's blessings on your journey. Cannot wait for what music comes out of this.

Simon ArmourSorry to see you, Michelle and the kids go, Josh. A 26 acre farm sounds like reason enough. Best of luck with the move and settling back in. Hope we can swing a drink with the fellas before you do.

Arian ArmstrongIt was so great to have an inside into the "why" behind some of the decisions we've all notice you make over the years...i.e. tour schedule, label, etc...and it made me appreciate even more the counter-cultural, true-to-self, 'family business" style way you've slowly but steadily built your career and fan base. We're all better for it! It inspired me to continue to do the same with art. Thanks and keep on keepin on!

I'm gutted I'm going to miss your show in Santa Cruz (my family is moving back to England just before!), but would love to invite you to come to Bristol UK and would be happy to help set something up if you have any dates in Europe. Love you brother!
