Our Mission

Joshua Schweiger was a little boy born to Craig and Leeanne Schweiger May 5th, 1999. Joshua died unexpectedly the morning of July 14th, 2000. The Joshua Foundation was originally created to build an interdenominational Christian retreat house. The endeavor grew to develop three Joshua Houses for serving others and sharing the love of Jesus with the lost.

Our Beliefs

The Joshua Foundation stands for unity in the Body of Christ. Now it represents three places for Christian Believers from various denominations, races, cultural and economic backgrounds to share: third world Haiti, a quiet country setting in Ligonier and the urban community in Pittsburgh. 

A Ministry of Place

Three places for believers to renew and grow in their faith. Through its Joshua Houses, The Joshua Foundation refined its purpose to become The Joshua House, “A Ministry of Place.”

A Ministry of Place

 A place is significant because, as its Creator, God is Lord of that space. There is no place in the entire world where God is not the sovereign Lord. A place is where it may be said “The Lord reigns here.” The work of the Joshua Foundation is accomplished in partnership with the Lord of place to provide, in His name and by His provision, places where significant things can happen between individuals and between individuals and God.

Make A Real Change In Someone’s Life

The Joshua Foundation was started with the specific purpose of building an interdenominational CHRISTIAN retreat house. Over the past 20 years, we have been able to witness the Lord work through missionaries and see countless lives changed.

Joshua House Locations

The work of the Joshua Foundation is founded upon and motivated by a theology of place. We believe that a place is more than just a portion of space.  A place is a significant portion of space for a number of important reasons.
