20 Year Celebration
On Saturday, 21 September 2019 we met to celebrate JoshGen’s 20th birthday. That night we took a stroll down memory lane, watching a video that captured some of our significant milestones – with hearts burning with gratitude at all that God has done, and is still doing in the lives and hearts of His church!
Take a look at some of the hi-lights from the past 20 years, below.
