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

Spiritual Discipline – Meditation

Psalm 1:2, But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. Thought For Today Choices, decisions, and change require extra thought.
