Kurt is an author and expert in middle school ministries and in the past year has gone from overseeing junior high at one of the largest churches in North America to being responsible for the oversight of the entire youth ministry at the church.
Timothy Kurtaneck, director of The National Institute says, “To have someone of Kurt’s experience and passion share for an entire day with our youth ministry students is an awesome blessing. He is a busy man – yet his commitment to training up the next generation of leaders is strong and an incredible blessing. I am grateful for his encouragement, his vision, and his willingness to serve in the name of Jesus.”
