Missions

MISSION OF THE MONTH

Maven Ministries (Brett Kunkle) exists to help the next generation know truth, pursue goodness and create beauty, and to equip those who teach and train them – parents, youth workers, pastors and educators to do the same.  The culture is speaking to our kids every single day.  Are they ready for these conversations?  Are we?  Through speaking, writing, video, and Apologetics or Biblical Immersive Expereince (i.e.) trips, MAVEN wraps the truth in culturally savvy ways that grab the attention of their distracted minds, gain a hearing and woo them back to Christ.  For more information, visit www.maventruth.com.
