Cody Skinner young adult ministries

Cody grew up on a ranch west of Great Falls.  He was raised in church, but never came to a real understanding of Jesus until college. He was saved while he was high on drugs and reading the Bible. His life was changed forever as he gained understanding into what Jesus meant when He said, “rivers of living water flow from within them.”  Cody always knew how to have fun, laugh, and be crazy, but that was the first time He experienced actual joy, peace, and satisfaction from deep within.   By his abundant grace and mercy, Cody plans to follow God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit the rest of his life.
