Due to current COVID restrictions and uncertainty of future restrictions, it is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to cancel the Joshua Wilderness Institute for the 2020-21 academic year. We studied every viable option, but were unable to develop a program that could provide the needed value, experience, and excellence befitting Joshua.

Obviously, this is very disappointing news to the students, their families, and the Joshua staff. Please pray for the Joshua Wilderness Institute as we shut things down, while at the same time prepare as best we can for the 2021-22 academic year. We are fully committed to Joshua and look forward to next year!
