Peace family, Kanakuk Ministries have been around since 1926, and Peace 107 had the chance to attend a luncheon with a presentation about a new project they are doing. In college, Kat had friends who worked as counselors at the Kanakuk and KAA (Kids Across America, a program that specifically ministers to inner-city kids) camps, so it was fun to hear a little bit about what they are doing these days.
The main program they spoke about is called Link Year, which is designed to serve as a gap year between high school and college in which students gain more maturity, biblical teaching, privilege responsibility (to combat society’s entitlement attitude,) a better ability to discover and focus their strengths, and the ability to stand up for their values in a liberal arts college, among other things. The year also includes discipleship and an international trip, and students finish the program with as much as 23 transferable credit hours.
Kanakuk also has a long history of using athletics as part of its ministries, and right now, they are trying to raise money to buy a new basketball gym that is priced at $700,000 in Branson, Missouri.
