OUR TEAM

Jasper Bacon
Executive Director

In 1976, God’s sovereign plan was brought to the forefront when Jasper & Carolyn Bacon were first introduced in a Bible study where they both accepted Christ as their personal Savior. In God’s providence, they travelled separate paths from 1979 to 1983. It was God’s hand that brought them back together and joined them in marriage in 1985.
After serving in pastoral ministry for the next eight years, Jasper along with Carolyn was given a vision for outreach ministry to impact more lives for Christ. This calling was to develop a ministry which would provide strategic outreach to the unchurched and unevangelized people in the Bacon’s hometown of the Canton and surrounding communities. Read more.
