Jason and Sara Battiest

Jason and Sara Battiest moved from Bethel in 2005 to become the house parents of the CYAK house.  Jason and Sara had been doing college ministry in Bethel and have a heart for serving rural students.  Sara also went through the CCF program while she was in college at UAF, so they were a natural fit.  Levi, their only child, was born on June 26, 2009.  With the birth of their first, they plan on taking a break from the CYAK house this upcoming school year to focus on their new family.
