J-Gen 2018 Schedule

J-Gen 2018 Registration Now Live!

Given the countless tragedies and frightening headlines that bombard us every day, it is easy to grow fearful and discouraged. However, the Bible calls the church of Jesus Christ to be strong and courageous. Rather than shying away from the realities of life, we must rise up knowing that God is with us.

Join us this year as we celebrate 20 years of God’s faithfulness to the ministry of J-Gen. We will be returning to our original vision to be “The Joshua Generation,” in the midst of our present age. As we unite in worship and listen to the proclamation of God’s Word, may we return to this command and promise: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
