The Joshua Story

When Moses reached the border of the Promised Land he sent out scouts ahead to appraise the situation carefully. Joshua was one of those scouts. When he returned, Joshua reported discovering vineyards, orchards, fertile land, and fortified cities. The people didn’t know what to do. Joshua helped them understand their destiny, having faith that God would not have let them come so far only to have them fall just short of their goal. After Moses died Joshua continued to lead the people forward, navigating the new land for the good of God's people. This story is about helping them understand their purpose, provide a plan to get there, and to gather the leadership and resources needed along the way. That is what we do too.

The Joshua Group was born in 2014 out of an urgent need of churches and ministries alike for clarity of purpose, alignment of leadership, and organizational health and vitality.  Since then, we have engaged many, many congregations and a wide variety of camps, educational institutions, judicatories, social services, and other ministries in meaningful experiences of missional transformation. Our services for organizational effectiveness focus on clarity of purpose and missional identity for the future health, vitality and impact of your organization.

We do this through consulting practices of:

  • Strategic Planning/Visioning
  • Pastoral Leadership Transition
  • Leadership Development
  • Change Management
  • Organizational Assessments
  • Conflict Utilization


Our clients say...

"The idea of strategic planning was a bit overwhelming as we didn't know where to begin.  The Joshua Group provided a positive leader with an infectious personality to create excitement with purposeful and logical steps as we moved forward."
