Jackson County Ministries
Jackson County Ministries will share the redeeming love of Jesus Christ through the unified ministry of the Reformed churches in Jackson County with the emphasis on youth ministry, family ministry, and mission opportunities.
Jackson County Ministries (JCM) carries on an active program of evangelism and service--particularly to the people of Jackson County, Kentucky, but also to the residents of the wider Appalachian region.
JCM places a strong emphasis on service to youth:
The CLAY (Christian Living Activities for Youth) program reaches out to young people who are having problems at home or at school.
JCM facilities are also used by Barnabas Home, Inc., which provides residential youth treatment services for twenty-two boys through a contractual arrangement with the state of Kentucky.
Annville Christian Academy, a private grade school for children in kindergarten through grade seven, also uses JCM's facilities.
JCM serves young people through its summer Bible camp, Camp JCM (Jesus Christ Magnified).
JCM provides programs to meet specific needs:
A volunteer work camp benefits visiting volunteers as well as individuals in need of assistance.
UNITE is a task force that works to clean up the drug problem in Jackson County.
3AJC (Appalachian Alternative Agriculture of Jackson County Inc.) helps farm families improve their quality of life. Farmers work together to get a profitable return for farm products so they can make a living in ways other than growing tobacco.
Two used clothing stores sell twelve to fifteen truckloads of donated clothing and household items each year.
A gym ministry in the recently renovated JCM gymnasium is utilized by children and adults of all ages.
Family Ministries holds workshops on nutrition and marriage enrichment to help improve family life in the community.
