Your 20s are a transformative time. You face new experiences, new choices and new decisions. It's also a time of discovery. Discovering who you are, what you want to be and the family you'll have. The Jesus Connection is a community of people who can see you through these discoveries. It's a group of people you can trust and who can sympathize with you. It's a family who will celebrate the good times with you and carry you through the difficult. It's a community who will always support you in your walk with Jesus and encourage you to follow His plans for your life.

Whether you're single, married, a parent or caretaker, in college or building your career,

The Jesus Connection is your family.

Our Vision

Reach. Equip. Grow.

Every young adult in Darke County will be in a wholehearted relationship with Jesus and committed to sharing His love with others.

Our Values

Our values are based on the beatitudes in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, recorded in Matthew 5:2-11. We believe these 9 characteristics mark a life dedicated to fulfilling Jesus' great commission to go out and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20).

Jesus Came for YOU

"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."

- Galatians 2:20

Our Lord Jesus Christ humbled Himself to the point of death on the cross for you (Philippians 2:8). How will you show your love for Him in return? Join other young adults as we encourage one another, grow our relationships with Jesus and share Him with others.
