When we began planning for the 2016 Great Grill Off and working through our vision for the event, Psalm 34:8 came to mind.

“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”

Our prayer for this past Great Grill Off was that even more people would spend the afternoon on the beautiful CCHO campus and, together with their friends and family, TASTE all the incredible food that will be available and SEE all the ways the Lord has blessed the work being done by Christian Children’s Home of Ohio and Encompass Christian Counseling, Foster Care and Adoption Services. And boy, did He answer that prayer in a powerful way!

More than 1200 people came out for the 2016 Great Grill Off, and we served 3000 burgers and frankfurters that day! Those 1200 people also contributed very generously to the CCHO mission, with total giving for the day hitting approx. $27,000 between donations at the gate, sponsor donations and our auction proceeds. WOW! Please click here to see even more numbers from the incredible day on the CCHO campus.

Our prayer will remain the same for the fifth annual Great Grill Off, only we would love to see even more people Taste and See in 2017! We hope to see you there.
