Our Mission

"To bring hope, education, recreation, and inspiration to youth and families of Branch County by creating a Christ-centered environment. We value unconditional acceptance, Christ Centered living and community."


Branch County is a great place to raise a family and make a living doing what God has gifted us to do. Coach Floyd Eby's work on the basketball court, as a long-time teacher at Coldwater High School, author, Christian, businessman, confidant and friend of many - was the perfect example of living this life. To honor his legacy, Coach Eby's family gifted the assets of Calling God's Tower to create the Coach Eby Youth and Family Center.

Our programming includes: Friday Night Alive, Coats for Kids, and starting September, 2018 we will have an after school program called "Eby After School".


Our youth need the leadership and example of adults. The Coach Eby Youth and Family Center helps to provide that to all children in our community. But we can't do it without your help! Click here.

We prayed for...
more compassion for the lost. We prayed for more connection to kids in tough places. We prayed for more impact on the least, the lost and the hungry.

God answered...
and He exceeded our wildest expectations! Our vision-desire for serving, feeding the hungry, and mentoring youth and families is in full swing! Doors are opening where we thought doors would not be opened for a while.

Because of such generosity and shared vision for youth...
The Eby Board, Staff and Volunteers have been positively moved to a higher energy level and commitment in honoring our community gifts and donors, serving and creating opportunity for Branch County’s youth in a safe environment!

A Very Grateful,
Michael Gatke

"A safe place to be..."
