About Ken Turner

I've been in full-time youth ministry since 1987. Jennifer and I have been married since 1987 (that was a good year). We have three kids including two daughters and one son. After twenty-one years in church youth ministry, God led me to form a youth outreach ministry to high-risk and fatherless youth in 2008. It has been one of the most exciting journeys of my life and I continue to learn the meaning of James 1:27 in new ways. www.kenturnerministries.org
