Today Jim Piper talks with his long-time friend Brett Kunkle. Brett is the founder and leader of MAVEN. The first thing you see when you visit the MAVEN website are three words; TRUTH + GOODNESS + BEAUTY. Their stated mission is “to help the next generation know truth, pursue goodness and create beauty, all for the cause of Christ, and to equip those who teach and train them—parents, grandparents, youth workers, pastors, and educators—to do the same”. Jim and Brett discuss the need to teach, guide and lead youth in today’s world more than ever and many other related topics. Brett also shares how a negative experience with one of his college professors lead him down a path to learn more about his faith and Christianity.
