The vision and the visionaries
Jesus Shack was conceived in 1997 by Dave and Kathy Voss who had a heart’s desire to reach the youth of Kern County with a life-changing message. Dave and Kathy saw the powerful attraction that music presented to each generation and believed that a music ministry would be an effective way to reach at-risk youth. As a result, Jesus Shack began as a grass roots concert production company exclusively staffed by dedicated volunteers. As the ministry grew God revealed the need to reach those in the community who are often overlooked. As a result, the Street Team Ministry began in June of 2003 and continues to meet the physical and spiritual needs of less fortunate residents.
Through community support, Jesus Shack also offers annual events such as Run It Back, Operation Back to School, and Kids’ Christmas and are always looking for new ways to “Raise a Generation to Reach This Generation”.
Our mission is to Reach out into our community, crossing all barriers of discrimination, (i.e. social economics, race and religious denominations). We partner with dedicated volunteers from churches, businesses, corporations and organizations in our mission to touch the lives of those in need. Jesus Shack accomplishes this through music, medical care to those without insurance, and Community Reach projects for individuals that are having a difficult time providing for their families. Our passion is to be a catalyst for positive change in our community.
