A word from Ryan:

I am honored, humbled and excited to have been chosen to lead this organization into the next season of ministry for the Lord.

BiGJAWs Youth for Christ is as stable and healthy as it has ever been.  It is my passion to continue fulfilling the mission of Youth for Christ by bringing effective, efficient and inspiring ministry across our five-county area.  God has called us to this work and we are taking His call seriously, but we need your help. Our communities have embraced this ministry on a number of levels and for that we are truly grateful.  I ask that you join us, like never before, as we strive to reach the EVERY in the 29 ministry sites in our chapter. There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are determined that every student within our schools has the opportunity to hear the gospel during their junior high and senior high school years.

I ask that you pray as we continue to fulfill this assignment that God has entrusted to us.  Our prayer is that we continue to find the most effective, efficient and inspiring methods to do His work. God's got this!

His Humble Servant,
