A couple that runs a Bible study for teens at their Albertville home prior to the school day will speak at the Unity Foundation's Faith @ Work Lunch from noon-1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, at the Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria.

Jake and Christy Vanada were supposed to speak in Alexandria last fall, but the COVID pandemic forced them to postpone.

They started the study for high school students eight years ago and it draws hundreds of students for a hearty breakfast and Bible lesson. Called the STMA Breakfast Club, it has been featured on KARE11 in the Twin Cities.

Graduating from University of Northwestern in 1996 with a degree in Bible and Youth Ministry, Jake has worked as a youth pastor at several churches. He was on staff with FCA for more than nine years. Jake’s current role is the National AMA Chaplain for Supercross and Motocross. Jake and Christy serve side by side in the ministry to the professional dirt bike athletes, their wives and families as well as the industry. Breakfast Club continues to be a huge passion for them as they serve and love the teenagers in St. Michael/Albertville.

Tickets cost $10 per person and can be purchased online or at the door.
