About Us

We are a Christ-centered, compassion-in-action organization set on moving with God and those He has called to build a better future through community building, meeting needs, and discipleship.

Our Mission

Equipping those passionate for Jesus and the local church the world over to serve the most hurting, providing physical relief while providing biblical context/discipleship to individuals within impoverished communities

Our History

JTJ formed at in 2009 as an advocacy through media org that had a heart for Christ and compassion to the least of these. We then channeled our energies into journeying with a tent camp in Haiti called Capvva that formed after the 2010 earthquake that left more than 100,000 people displaced. Our journey in Capvvsa ended in 2014 when members of the community where given U.N.-sponsored grants to move out and the camp was closed. We then delved into agricultural development in partnership with the Foundation for International Development Assistance/productive cooperatives Haiti and a began walking alongside an agrarian Haitian community called Zoranger. Today, we are a mix of our past and present, moving to spread Christ’s love to those in need on a global level and integrating development principles for sustainability that we’ve learned along the way.

Statement of Faith

We believe in the below foundational truths that affirm the identity of Jesus Christ and His redemptive work.

1. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

2. Jesus Christ, as the only begotten Son, is one in the divine essence with the Father and Holy Spirit, yet was also fully human, being equally man and God. He was conceived by the Spirit and born of a virgin, had a sinless life, performed great miracles, died on a cross as atonement for sins, was raised up on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, and will one day return to reign amongst those that believe in Him. Matt. 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

3. Christ’s blood was shed as a substitutionary sacrifice so that sinful, lost mankind could be reconciled to God, and have the gift of salvation and eternal life by turning to him in repentance and faith. Those who are in Christ are then new creations in which the old self has died and the new self has been raised up with Him. Being baptized in/with Him is symbolic of an inward regenerated heart, mind and soul that is then subjected to his lordship and led by His Spirit. When we are looking to Him as Savior, we are no longer bound by sin and death and are able to take part in His grace to receive the eternal heaven waiting that He has prepared for us. Mark 1:15; John 3:3, 7, 16; Acts 16:31; Romans 6:3-11,23; II Corinthians 5:16-19;Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:5

4. We believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation. He is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6; Acts 4:11-12

5. His Holy Spirit indwells in us once we believe and is our guide for all things, and will lead us to a righteous walk of faith and fruitfulness. Acts 5:32; Romans 5:5; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 1:13

6. We believe the Bible to be the inspired; the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:15-17.

7. We have been commissioned as disciples of Christ Jesus to take the message of the gospel throughout the earth; baptizing all peoples in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He promised that His Spirit would equip them for this endeavor and that He would be with us always. Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:7
