A LEGACY
THAT ENDURES

For the past 30 years, Joshua House has been a home for hundreds of young men as they learn what it means to follow Jesus in intentional community and to invite others into that life together. The rhythms of discipleship, consistent open-door hospitality, and subsequent life-long bonds that the J-House residents share are exactly what the Campus House staff and board of directors prayed for when we purchased the house in 1991. The house has played a crucial role in the life of our community through the years, and consequently, the building itself has endured consistent, heavy use. The roof, porches, and communal bathrooms have all been in varying stages of disrepair and require considerable renovations to keep the house a safe, welcoming space for residents and guests. See specific project details below.

Over the past year, many J-House alumni have come alongside this project with gifts and pledges. This generosity has allowed us to install a new roof in May 2023 and to move forward with plans for a remodel of both communal bathrooms in summer 2024. Looking ahead to 2025, we are hoping to reconstruct both porches and regrade the landscaping on the north side of the house to remedy existing drainage issues and prevent future flooding.

YOUR ROLE IN THIS PROJECT

We have already raised over $130,000 in gifts and pledges. Thank you to all of you who have already made a gift! We still need nearly $100,000 to complete the remaining renovations. This spring, a long-time friend of our ministry has generously offered a dollar-for-dollar matching gift up to $50,000. Would you prayerfully consider helping us activate this matching gift? Every dollar you give will be doubled in impact—and with your participation in meeting this matching gift, the Joshua House renovations will be fully funded. This matching opportunity applies to all new gifts made in 2024, but if you are planning to give in the second half of the year, we ask that you make a pledge by July 4th to allow us to plan for renovations. The matching gift does not apply to outstanding pledges.

Join us in securing the ongoing ministry of Joshua House by giving or pledging through one of the options at the bottom of this page.

We are blown away by the work God has done the past thirty years at Joshua House and are very committed to partnering with Him in His ongoing work there into the future. Join us in making some much-needed updates to the house and impacting the lives of the young men who live there and those they welcome into the house for decades to come."

Repairing the Roof
The roof had acute issues, including broken and leaky gutters, holes and gaps in the soffits, and missing shingles. Over 30 alumni chose to come alongside the renovation project after the reunion, and we were able to replace the roof in the summer of 2023. We're grateful for God's provision for this stage of the improvements!


Updating the Bathrooms
With missing tiles, chipped counters, and cracked shower enclosures, both communal bathrooms are showing their age. The bathrooms are not significantly different than they were when we purchased the house, so complete bathroom renovations are long overdue. We have hired an architect and a contractor to complete these renovations this summer!


Reconstructing the Porches
The brick wall of the side porch is bulging in multiple places, the holes in the concrete deck seem to grow larger each year, and the front porch is not as stable as it once was. Additionally, water has found its way into a couple of the basement rooms recently, and we need to regrade the landscaping on the entire north side of the house to prevent this from happening consistently. It is not yet an emergency, but we hope to rebuild both deteriorating porches and rework the landscaping in the summer of 2025.

For generations of Purdue students, Joshua House has been a place where residents grow together in their discipleship to Jesus and guests encounter radical hospitality. We invite you to prayerfully consider making a one-time gift or a monthly pledge over the next year to sustain this treasured space. Any gift or pledge made before July 4, 2024, will be matched up to $50,000. We ask that you email Ken ([email protected]) to make a pledge or to notify him about a gift so we can ensure it is included in the matching opportunity.
