|Adventures in Odyssey Clubhouse and Focus on the Family Clubhouse Jr. magazines reach more than 130,000 kids in over 100 countries every month with life-changing biblical truth. Jesse, an employee at Focus for nearly 23 years, is the current Editorial Director of these magazines and has witnessed the impact his work has made on children and families around the world. Focus on the Family has been a tremendous outlet for Jesse as he directs his love for writing towards the many areas of Focus’ youth ministry.|
One of the many rewarding aspects of Jesse’s position at Focus is watching the Clubhouse initiatives unfold. Every summer Clubhouse and Club Jr. challenge their young readers to participate in an activity, reach out to family members, friends, etc., and make a difference in the world. In one case, Clubhouse readers raised money for survivors of the Rwandan genocide in 1994.
These funds helped orphans build homes, get married and start their own families. And the monies are still at work today! God uses these Clubhouse initiatives in wonderful ways, and the children are active participants of an incredible cause. Jesse is continually encouraged by the results of his day-to-day work.
|When Jesse started at Focus, he actively read through the many books written by Dr. James Dobson. Getting married at age 20, and being a father at age 23, Jesse claims that Focus on the Family has helped him understand what the role of a husband and father should look like from a biblical standpoint. It is no question that Jesse has made an impact through Focus on the Family, and Focus on the Family has made an impact on him.|
