The Red Barn is an outreach center for youth in Upland, Indiana that functions as BiGJAWs City Life Ministry. It is a partnership between Youth for Christ and Lightrider Ministries and run by Troy Shockey, a director for Youth for Christ.  

The purpose of City Life is to help young people to develop attitudes and behavior patterns that allow them to function more constructively in society.  While all of the Youth for Christ ministries share the same purpose, City Life meets and interact with students, grades 6-12, in Grant County before and after school. A number of volunteers from area Christian colleges help assistin providing an exciting, safe, and Christ-centered environment in which kids may play, learn, and grow.
