BIGJAWs Youth for Christ ministers to the students in our communities of Blackford, Grant, Jay, Adams, and Wells counties. YFC is a non-denominational, community-based organization that strives to help teens realize they are not alone as they navigate their adolescent years. Youth for Christ leaders desire to authentically connect with young people so they may understand how much God cares for them.

The money donated to BIGJAWs Youth For Christ will go towards the Campus Life ministry and programming needs. Campus Life ministry combines healthy relationships with creative programs to help young people make good choices, establish a solid foundation for life, and positively impact their schools.

YFC cannot reach young people without the support of the community. To make a donation or learn more about YFC and how you can be involved, please visit their website at
