At the age of 16, Jess Ford co-founded Ignite Student Ministries, a weekly multi-site youth gathering of over 600 students around DFW. Since then, Jess graduated from Oral Roberts University with his undergraduate degree in Ministry and Leadership. Jess recently obtained an MBA from Oral Roberts University, concentrating in Christian leadership. Today, Jess works full-time for Live Action and serves as a writer for Focus on the Family.
The sanctity of life is an issue close to his heart because of his own story, as Jess was nearly aborted when his mom had an unplanned pregnancy. Today, Jess actively speaks through a pro-love organization that his mother, Amy Ford, founded called Embrace Grace.
Jess is passionate about communicating the beauty of God and the gift of life we are blessed with.
"Jess superseded my expectations I had for that evenings presentation. It was exactly what I had hoped. The comments after have been all good!"
