The Ginnans

Hey, we're John and Caity Ginnan. We have 3 kids, Tessa, Greyson, and Karis. We serve as NY Youth Alive Missionaries. Youth Alive® is a church-assisting ministry which provides local churches with the leadership, network and resources to grow a movement of middle, jr. high and high school campus missionaries who are activated for the social and spiritual renewal of their schools. We give leadership, network, and resources to grow a movement of grade 7 to 12 students transforming their communities with the Message of Hope, Jesus Christ
