The Switchyard is celebrating 25 years!
25 Years – A Look Back on History
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
In 1994, God placed on the heart of Joe Tenthorey to pour into the hearts of the young people in Bancroft. Joe had a passion for youth and to see youth come to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Joe enjoyed building relationships with these youth and give them someone they could trust and count on in every circumstance. This sparked The Switchyard. For 25 years, The Switchyard has been just that, a place where young people can come and be safe. Somewhere they can trust and escape from whatever life situation they find themselves in. For 25 years, we have had dedicated staff and volunteers to pour their time and energy into the youth in Bancroft. As we celebrate 25 years, we have seen God work in tremendous ways. We have seen youth coming to a saving faith in Jesus Christ, families being started, relationships being built, and miracles happening. God has always been present each day and we thank Him countless times for all he has done. We look forward to another 25 years where we can continue to see people grow closer to God and for all that God has in store here in Bancroft.
