Jon and Jenny Reeverts, co-founders of In Christ Ministries, experienced the weakness of their self-sufficiency living in bondage as Christians for years. After they heard and embraced the concept of exchanging their broken attempts of managing life for the life of Christ, they knew God had called them to teach this truth to the teens. Jon was a high school teacher as well as a minister and he was quite aware of the youth's vulnerability to the world's attack on their identity and their need for love, acceptance, and worth. The Reeverts began a non-denominational youth group in 1999 known as Youth In Christ. Later they expanded their outreach of sharing the exchanged life message to adults and received their nonprofit status in 2016 renaming their ministry In Christ Ministries.
The Reeverts' have three adult children who were all raised in this message of grace. Their youngest daughter Mackenzie and her husband David Nunez began training under Jon and Jenny in 2017 with the desire to step into a leadership role. In 2019 they joined the team as full-time disciplers bringing an abundance of ideas, enthusiasm, and life!
Jon battled cancer for twelve years before he met Jesus face to face on March 12, 2021. His struggle only intensified his desire to share God's grace impacting the lives of thousands. He lived what he taught. Our lives without his strong leadership and passion will never be the same, but Christ living in us will never change!
