YBL Jackson announces new Executive Director!

Update from YBL Jackson:

I am very pleased to announce that YBL-Jackson has a new Executive Director, Jay Fletcher.

Jay is uniquely suited to serve in this role.  First, he has a passion for ministering and discipling in small group and one-on-one settings.  In his most recent job, Jay served as a chaplain for three local companies.  His job was to get to know employees and minister to them.  Second, he is an ordained minister and has studied and taught the scriptures throughout his career.  His bible knowledge is critical both for leading small groups and teaching our small group leaders.  Third, his skill set is a perfect fit.  Jay is an excellent teacher, team builder, and a gifted leader and administrator.

YBL is thankful to the Lord for providing guidance during this search process and thankful that He led us to Jay Fletcher.  Please join me in welcoming him!

Doug McDaniel
YBL Jackson Board Chairman

2016 Update from YBL Jackson:

    We wanted to provide a brief update regarding YBL Jackson.  First, thanks to our many supporters who have allowed YBL Jackson to remain financially healthy.  We are pleased to report that we covered all of our expenses in 2015 with the generous support of our donors.  Second, the YBL Jackson Board is continuing our search for an Executive Director.  We have identified and been contacted by several outstanding prospective directors and are beginning those discussions and interviews.  Third, we have established a date for our Spring Banquet which will be Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 11:30 at the Jackson Hilton on County Line Road.  We are currently in discussion with several potential speakers.
    Finally, a number of YBL small groups continue to meet across the metro area led by our capable team of small group leaders.  These small groups allow men to be discipled as well as to disciple each other.  We are very thankful for the commitment of our small group leaders.  Thank you, and we look forward to your continued involvement with YBL Jackson.

2015 Letter from the YBL Jackson Board Chairman

YBL Jackson – 2015 Review

2015 has been a year of both growth and change for YBL Jackson.  In September our founding executive director, Doug Owen, resigned after 21 years of service to YBL.  Under Doug’s leadership, the gospel has been presented to thousands of men.  In addition, Doug led hundreds of men through small group bible studies using our Concentrating on the Majors study and he counseled many men in one-on-one sessions. We are very thankful for Doug’s leadership through the years.

Thankfully, our YBL Jackson board is committed to seeing the gospel proclaimed to business men in the Metro Jackson area.  We are committed to filling the position of executive director as soon as we can.  A search committee has been appointed to find a new executive director.  A job description is posted below here at www.YBLjackson.com, and we request that any inquiries be directed to Info@YBLjackson.org.

In 2015, we hosted two excellent banquets.  Our speakers were Hu Meena, CEO of C Spire and Ron Andrews, a nationally known leader in the medical diagnostic industry.  Over 400 men attended these two banquets and many were first-time attenders.  Currently, there are 13 YBL small group bibles studies meeting at various locations around town.

Another event we hosted was our annual Sporting Clays shoot.  This year, we had 96 shooters and some significant corporate sponsor support.  Thanks to the hard work of many of our men, this event has doubled in size in the last five years.

Finally, we added a new Elite Corporate sponsor this year, bringing our total Elite sponsors to five.  These companies have committed to give generously to YBL.  They, along with all of our donors have put us on solid financial footing in 2015.  We are grateful for their support

We do appreciate your prayer support as we seek to guide this ministry forward.


Doug McDaniel

Chairman, YBL Jackson
