The CJA Foundation
Established September 6, 2013 in memory of Candace J Avents

Mission: To inspire young people to achieve personal goals through Christian Education, academics and creativity.

Candace J Avents was an integral part of the LGBC family. Her contributions are too numerous to list, but her greatest legacy will be lives of the countless young people she touched in her time on this earth. The CJA Foundation has decided to continue her legacy and expand her vision by partnering with LGBC to construct a building to house the Foundation Learning Center, a K1-K5 School and the Before and After School Program; rooms for Christian Education; a studio and performing arts room and various other facilities. It was her vision to have a place for her students as well as the youth ministry of LGBC. Join with LGBC and the CJA Foundation to make this dream a reality!
