First Love Ministries aims to put Jesus at the center of every effort, desiring to see 

Him known and adored in the earth and people to be made whole as they encounter a God who loved them first. It was founded in 2017 when Josh and Kelly Bacon were given the directorship of a local non-profit and renamed the organization to better describe the heartbeat of what they do and why they do it.

Jesus is worthy of every life's fragrance. May God ever be our first love and may we ever set love first as we say yes to Him. 



A personal note from Josh & Kelly:

Childhood sweethearts and now parents to four amazing kids and the blessed addition of a son in law, we have been completely undone by the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord.

We want to live our faith authentically and from a place of intimacy with God. Whether it is our vision for the Burn in upstate NY, our work in overseas mission fields, our desire to serve the marginalized and contend for justice, the running of our local community youth center, leading worship, participating in speaking opportunities, being at our jobs and places of work, interaction with our neighbors, or spending precious time with family - may Jesus be glorified. May the truth of His unending love penetrate every dark place and difficult situation, as well as every joyous celebration and time of rest. HE IS WORTHY OF IT ALL
