The Joshua 1:9 Group

We were started by a group of men in The Woodlands, Texas who saw a need in the community to help the parents of children, born and unborn, achieve their educational and employment goals in hopes of providing a better life for their family.

 

Our organizational structure:

We are an informal group that supports PACN, Lone Star College, and other local organizations.  we do not accept direct donations.  We promote partner organizations (PACN - we support their clients) and Lone Star College (where we refer our scholars for classes), and encourage you to donate directly to these organizations.

 

Partnerships:

We are partnering with PACN to help identify young men and women in need.  We're actively seeking additional partnerships with churches, non-profits, and other organizations that identify and help young men and women in our local area.

"Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Start a J19 Group in your community:

The model of partnering with crisis pregnancy centers and other non-profits to support young men and women with workforce training scholarships is a model we would like see expanded across the United States. Please contact us if you are interested in starting a J19 chapter in your area.
