Dave Jamerson, Pastor of Renovate Church, Cedar Park, TX and Former NBA, Houston Rockets

“I truly believe that ministering to the next generation, to underserved people and communities, and to those on the fringes of society are three of the most important areas in which a person can minister. Ken Turner has not only shown a commitment in these areas, but great effectiveness! I would whole-heartedly endorse his ministry!”
