Dave and Cindy Just pictured with one of this year’s recipients.

Growing up in Chaska, Minnesota, Jon Just loved Jesus, his family, a good joke, and anything with a motor. Family photos capture a young man in perpetual motion, excited and happy in a fishing boat, boarding a plane, or on one of the numerous motorcycles he rode through the years.

On a fall evening in September of 2004, Jon was riding his R6 Yamaha to meet his wife Melissa at their
church, where the couple served with the youth ministry. Jon never arrived. At age 23 and only nine months married, he was killed in a motorcycle accident on his way to the church.

In the days following Jon’s death, his devastated parents, Dave and Cindy Just, and brothers, Ben and
Nathan, continually prayed the three prayers that carried them through their hardest grief. The first, Cindy said, was that in their pain, they would be open to “God sightings,” moments when they could see God at work and “know that he was with us…”

ATS Grads Committed to the Cause of Christ

ATS Uganda 2023 Graduation Procession | Bukwo, Uganda

In the African nation of Uganda, nearly 75 percent of the population lives in rural regions far from medical care, schools, and church leaders who labor to see lives changed by Jesus.

Most people who live in those remote areas travel by foot when they travel at all, so those who share the Good News of Jesus Christ must go to them. After months of rigorous training to do so, it’s no wonder that graduations from ICM’s African Theological Seminary (ATS) are joyful celebrations.

More than 200 elated church leaders graduated in late March from ATS campuses in Bukwo, Uganda, and Kitale and Mt. Elgon in Kenya after completing the demanding theological training. ATS students are usually bi-vocational, taking the training while still serving their churches and working at jobs to support their families. ICM President Dave Champness said graduating from ATS demonstrates their strong commitment to the cause of Christ.
