New Venture camp is a camp for abused children under the protective custody of Charlotte Mecklenburg's Department of Youth and Family Services. For our New Venture Campers, it might be the first time they have been outside the city of Charlotte, the first time they have been in a totally safe environment where they get three meals a day, and lots of attention from caring, attentive staff. Truly, a week can change a life!
Who is Jake Tassy? He is a follower of Jesus, a husband to wife Katie for 25 years, a father to three children (23,19, 16 years old), a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a friend. 30+ years of working with families and students as an encourager, teacher, pastor, missionary, mentor, coach, and chaplain. God's journey has taken him into suburban and urban settings in the U.S. and internationally. Sports have been a great platform to learn and grow for him. Jake loves to listen to people's stories. One thing has remained the same: people need to be reminded that the good news of Jesus Christ's work is worth committing to, good, and joyfully lived out. Acts 4:12-13, Proverbs 3:5-6, Micah 6:8, 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, and 2 Corinthians 5 are Bible passages that keep him focused. He loves going on dates with his wife, loves laughing, loves jamming in the car with his kids, loves gummy candy, and loves seeing the "Ah-Ha" moments when God shows up in the lives of people.
