Cheris is our current Chief Ministry Officer. She has been with BiG JAWs Youth for Christ since 2007.  Cheris believes in the method of this ministry and in it's desire to "reach every kid with the Gospel of Christ." 

During her time as the Campus Life Director at Southern Wells High School (2007-2015) she was able to do this firsthand, and got to reap the blessings that come from the relational connection with students. Her role as Development Coordinator (2015-2018) allowed her the opportunity to support the ministry staff through supervision and training, while also using her skills to help better the financial development of the chapter. The passion of relational ministry and chapter development led her to accept the position of Area Director for Blackford and Wells counties (2018-2020.)

Serving in leadership for all of the ministry sites at BIGJAWS was a natural progression for Cheris' skills and passion.  "Campus Life ministry is very close to my heart and I want to see ministry not just succeed, but thrive, in each of our counties.  God has given BIGJAWS YFC a unique mission in our schools, and there are many students still to be reached.  I'm excited to be along for the ride, and to watch God's mighty power at work in our directors and in our schools."

Her husband Nick also serves in ministry and is the pastor at Huntington Bethel United Methodist Church.  They have 3 kids: Cohen, Heath and Allie and reside in Wells County, Indiana.  In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, spending time with her family, reading books, and drinking lots of coffee!
