Joshua Didier with His House of Wisconsin

Josh Didier serving with His House of Wisconsin

Josh Didier is a Campus Minister with His House of Wisconsin Ministries in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. This is a college campus ministry that exists to follow Jesus, share life and change the world through college students. College students will be world changers. They will be the next generation of leaders in this world and as they go into the world equipped in they ways of Jesus we will see God’s Kingdom come into fruition changing the world for God’s glory and our joy! This means we have to actively share the good news of Jesus with the people around us in our everyday lives. His House is an evangelical interdenominational ministry that allows for a diversity of theological perspective and practice. We see our diversity as a strength that allows everyone involved in our ministry to grow deeper in the mysteries of our shared faith. In the strength of our diversity we must also share a number of core beliefs so that we might stand strong together in unity.

We have had a busy first semester! Josh has been meeting students in his time on campus, and October included a couple of key trips for our ministry.

Fall Retreat Oct. 14-16

This retreat included all three of our campus ministries (Ripon College, UW-Oshkosh, and UW-Madison) as we met at Expeditions Unlimited for worship, study, and mutual encouragement. Our director guided us through the parable of the Good Samaritan and challenged our students to take an active role in bringing the Good News of God’s Kingdom to those who are hurting and oppressed in our communities. It was a great opportunity for challenge and bonding between campuses, and the weekend came to a close with the baptism of one of our Ripon College students!

Spain Oct. 24-30

This trip included Josh and three other staff members. We had the opportunity to meet with campus ministry leaders in Spain, and are planning a partnership that will lead to future trips with students. We intend to make this a consistent spring break trip for our students, and students from Spain will have the opportunity to visit us in the States on their spring break as well. Our students have the option to study abroad in Valencia, and this partnership with En Vivo Campus Ministry could provide internship opportunities for our students who desire to gain ministry experience. We also hope to bring over some Spanish students to serve in internships here in Wisconsin.

Through our spring break trips we will be developing opportunities for students to learn and grow along with peers from across the globe. For our believing students it will be an opportunity to share with other students about how the Gospel has impacted their lives, and be encouraged by the stories of their peers. And for our students who are not yet following Jesus, it will be an opportunity to be immersed in a community of believers and witness the power of Jesus at work in the lives of their peers. We also hope that these short trips will excite students over the possibility of joining in the internship opportunities mentioned above. We are praying for this to be an enriching experience for our students, and we are working to create an environment in which they will see Jesus at work!

During this trip Josh also had the pleasure of spending a day with Brian Phillips and his family in Granada! It was a great encouragement to hear what the Lord has been doing in their lives, and a joy to explore their community in Spain. During a year in which our family has experienced a lot of change, it was refreshing to reunite with old friends from Kahoka.

On Campus

It is taking time to build trust and develop opportunities to minister to students on campus, but Josh has been experiencing some breakthroughs with a few students. Handing out free coffee on campus has sparked most of the conversations with students. Our consistent presence in their weekly routine has provided a platform to share about our ministry, and given students a chance to share their stories with us. We have a few regulars who take time each week to stop and talk around our coffee table, and Josh began meeting with a new student this month who has expressed interest in being a part of our young ministry. Please continue in prayer for these relationships. We are seeing this ministry of presence begin to open opportunities for greater influence in the lives of our students!

Family News

We have one major family update: Baby number 4 is on the way! Baby Didier is due at the end of May in 2023. The boys are super excited! Before we found out Kayla was pregnant, Boaz (completely out of the blue) started saying, “When we have a girl, we have a baby!” We have no idea what we are having, but he has remained convinced that the baby will be a girl. We are all looking forward to our new family member and cannot wait to see what adventures he or she brings!

We appreciate you and are thankful for your continued support!

In Christ,

Joshua, Kayla, Isaac, Samuel, and Boaz

September 23, 2022

Classes have begun at UW-Madison!


After a lot of planning and preparation, Josh is excited to be getting more involved with campus life and making connections with students. Each week Josh is passing out free coffee and hosting games on campus in order to meet students and learn the daily rhythms at the University. We have already come across students who got coffee from our ministry last year and have been excited to reconnect with us! Several others have expressed an interest in joining a campus ministry and are interested in more information about His House. Student orientation produced some contact information for several students, and Josh was able to meet a couple others before classes began. He will also be attending open events and groups in which he can meet new students and share life with them. 

The early weeks of this semester are focused on relational ministry as Josh strives to be a source of the Good News in the lives of students. Many students are trying to find community and belonging at the beginning of the school year, and we want this ministry to be a place where they can find it. Josh is working to develop prayer and support groups that will help to develop this sense of community as well as modeling a humble approach to seeking Jesus. Building these types of relationships and earning trust takes time, but this re-planting stage affords us the opportunity to focus on being present in the lives of students. Please pray for these developing relationships and for the Lord to open the hearts of our students to hear His voice!

 Our family is starting to feel more at home in the community, and the local Wild and Free homeschool group is helping to develop friendships with local families.We are getting more acquainted with the area and less dependent on GPS each day! Kayla started a new homeschool year with the boys and they have been taking advantage of doing school outside while the weather is still nice! We are also visiting churches and searching for the right place for our family. Please pray for close friendships to be formed for all of us in this new community. 

Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We are praying for you as well. We know that the Lord has big plans for this semester and we know that He is working in your life as well.

In Christ,

Joshua, Kayla, Isaac, Samuel, and Boaz
