Welcome back to the podcast Think Biblically: Conversations on Faith and Culture. We're here with a friend today of Biola, a friend of Talbot, Brett Kunkle, you were a youth minister for 11 years, then you worked with Stand to Reason for 14 years.
You have a passion for young people, but also worldview and apologetics.
Yet you just launched this new unique ministry with a vision, and it's called Maven. Tell us first off, what does that mean and what's the idea behind it?

We're dealing with a kid who is media saturated, image based, they feel not necessarily think a lot. So how do we reach that kind of kid? And we wanna be an entry point. We know they need good theology and worldview and apologetics.
How do you reach that kid though? So that's what we wanna do. Talk to me about a couple of the practical things you're doing because you've inspired me to do this in my own teaching and work with students, I think it's really fresh and I would love to see the church jump on and really have this explode for the sake of students.
Talk about maybe like one or two of the unique things that you have been doing and will be doing in Maven. This is not unique in and of itself that we're gonna provide virtual tools. We're gonna do online videos and resources and seminars, but we're gonna pay very close attention to how we package it, and how we design it.
So for instance, I was just at a recent youth conference and a video was played for these students, you know junior highers, high schoolers are there.
A video is played and I'm watching the video, and I'm thinking, I think I know youth well enough to say, this video is not hitting them. So afterwards, I'm talking to a couple of the students.
