From Josh:

“Becoming the director of KAYN is an incredible opportunity.  I’m really looking forward to working alongside the churches in our school district to reach students for Christ.  I have a strong passion for teaching the Word and loving on students and KAYN is giving me the perfect platform to live out my passions.  Although my wife and I aren’t originally from the Kiski area, we have already formed a love for this community and the people here.  The opportunity to work with Kiski Area High School is a blessing: Whether that is character coaching in the fall, getting connected with various clubs, or meeting with the school administration.  Amanda and I have much to be thankful for; First to God for leading us to KAYN, second, to the board for the overwhelming support and care that they have shown us, and lastly to all of our KAYN supporters who are allowing me to minister to this community and cultivate relationships that God will bring to fruition.  God has a plan for KAYN and I fully believe that he will accomplish great things through this ministry.  Habakkuk 1:5 says, “Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed.  For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”
