Apply Now for Summer 2021 in Philadelphia
JULY 7-25


Joshua Generation is a dynamic ministry designed to equip youth to know God and make Him known.  

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” - Isaiah 43:19

For the past 26 years, Joshua Generation has been impacting the lives of young people!! As culture has changed throughout the years, we have been adapting to bring more relevant content to prepare this new era of young people for what God is doing on the earth. Joshua Generation is a 17 day summer outreach for 12-18-year-olds, who want to take time out of their summer, away from their phones to fully focus their time on knowing and learning more about God, His plan for their lives, and how to make His name known.

This 17 day program is broken up into a Bootcamp portion and an outreach portion. During Bootcamp, the students have daily classes on different aspects of God. They learn things like how to have and maintain their own personal quiet times, what their prayer lives can look like, daily and nightly spirit-led worship times, and how to evangelize to anyone. They also have time set aside during the day where they are taught dance and a drama to use as tools for the outreach portion of the program!  There is a great fun atmosphere with team games each night.

During the outreach, the students are broken up into teams and sent to different locations around Philadelphia and New York to share the gospel using the tools (street evangelism techniques, dance, drama, etc.) given to them during Bootcamp!

We have seen that teens need three essential things in their lives:  An intimate personal relationship with God, Christian friends who will stand with them and support them in their journey to know the Lord, and the experience of having God use them and reach others through their words and lives.  This is what JG is all about.
