A Chicago-based gospel youth choir, Joshua’s Troop blend modern metropolitan R&B and spirit noises with traditional gospel designs. Founded by Pastor Clay Evans and his successor in the Fellowship Methodist Baptist Chapel of Chicago, Pastor Charles Jenkins, the purpose of the choir was to spotlight their young teenaged churchgoers. Also known as Moses (Evans) and Joshua (Jenkins) by its congregation, the group ultimately got the name Joshua’s Troop honoring Jenkins and released its self-titled debut recording in 2000. Another album, Project Youngsters, adopted in 2004. By 2007 the group was beneath the path of brothers Percy and Jeral Grey, both of the gospel group New Path. The 3rd Joshua’s Troop recording, JT3, arrived later on that year, adopted this year 2010 by Troop Country.
