As we reviewed the programs and events of the 2017 (including our race series and HoopsFest), we realized that throughout this year, we have been able to touch close to 6,000 lives in big and small ways.  We are so thankful for your support via finances, time, energy, and prayers!  Hundreds of people like yourself willingly gave of their time and resources to impact this next generation. …and there was so much fruit!

  • HoopsFest Tyrone had 244 teams, 976 players and 150+ volunteers
  • We served 400 meals to students during the school year
  • We fed close 500 at our community Thanksgiving meal

We believe 2018 will be just as impacting as we focus on renovation projects in the Armory.  The project to renovate the upstairs gathering room at the Armory is a big step to drive forward our mission to help youth find purpose.  It will serve as an amazing training and equipping hub for Dauntless teens to be called out of wandering and into a life of purpose!

As 2017 draws to a close, would you consider giving towards this project?  Again, our goal is to raise $12,000 to be able to complete that room.  Your gift can truly make a difference!

Thank you again for your past and future support!  We are honored & inspired to do more!

May 2018 be a year of revived purpose and deep impact!

Many blessings to you in the New Year!

Sincerely,

The Joshua House Team

 

End of the Year Message to Dauntless Generation

Here is the prophetic word Mizpah shared in the video for the teenagers of Dauntless Generation...

"Some of you had very significant things happen this year. Some of you were baptized. Some heard God speak to you for the first time. Some of you stepped out to lead or start a group and take a stand for God. Some of you got saved! Some of you were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. Some of you received prophetic words that rocked you. Some of you felt God's presence for the first time. Some of you saw people healed. Some of you were healed. Some of you prayed for people and saw God touch them!

In all of these things, God did something new in you and it has shaped you and prepared you for the future...it has pointed you in the direction of your purpose and destiny. We want to challenge you. Do not take this lightly. For Christmas this year, do not let it be the same. Recognize that because Christ came to be with us on this earth, you are forever marked, you can live with purpose, knowing you have a future that He has carved out for you. Celebrate the fact that He came to be with YOU. He came so that He could spend eternity with YOU.  

Then from that foundation, we pray that you are launched into 2018 with newly revived purpose. That you know without a shadow of a doubt that He has called you to to do great things for such a time as this. Do not doubt the call on your life. Let Him pull you back deep into His heart, let Him aim and launch you to your target. During this holiday, take the time to hear Him speak to you about 2018 and be ready to live life to the fullest and give Him everything this year."
