HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – In honor of J.D. Gibbs, who died last Friday after a lengthy illness, the J.D. Gibbs Legacy Fund has been established to support the Young Life Ministry.
Gibbs was passionate in his support of the Young Life Ministry, for which he served as a leader, local committee member, and national board member during the previous 25 years. The Fund will support Young Life Ministry through two specific objectives that reflect Gibbs’ passion for outreach.
The Fund will provide the support necessary to reach adolescents from all socioeconomic backgrounds, those with special needs, and teen moms.
Young Life’s Windy Gap Camp in the mountains of N.C. has been a favorite of J.D. Gibbs’ and his family for many years. Windy Gap is located just 15 miles north of Asheville, N.C. and the Fund will be used to support the construction of a new dining hall as well as additional facility improvements.
