The average youth ministry budget (not including salaries) is $3000; the Adam Keehn Foundation wants to give selected young youth pastors up to $5000 for the development of their ministry to accomplish innovative next steps to share the Gospel with their community.  

$5000?! How?

At no cost to you, we want to provide Ministry Development Coaching through the Adam Keehn Foundation.

This will provide you with key exercises and steps to take to develop a sustainable grant request to give you up to $5000 to accomplish the dreams you have for your ministry.

In addition to that, you will receive:

  • One-on-one mentoring
  • “Sounding Board” consultation for your ideas and needs
  • Equipping in innovation ministry design
  • Resources ($$) to accomplish your vision
  • Feeling part of a team as you work to accomplish God’s purpose for your ministry

Who would be coaching me?

Our primary Ministry Coach is Dr. Dave Keehn, Adam’s father. Dave is a professor at Biola University in La Mirada, CA, serving as the department chair for Christian Ministries. Dave was a youth pastor for 29 years in both large and small churches; he is currently the Lead Pastor at a church in San Clemente, CA. He serves on many international ministry boards and develop youth ministries from the beginning stages. Dave has been developing and coaching the next generation of ministry leaders for over 20 years and he looks forward to working with you to become all that God has created you to be.

This all sounds too good to be true... why?

The Adam Keehn Foundation is a non-profit that exists to honor Adam Keehn by raising up and supporting youth pastors. Adam was a young youth pastor in Southern California and had dedicated his life to youth ministry before tragically passing away suddenly from a brain aneurysm on June 8, 2022 … 3 weeks before the birth of his daughter, Kinsley Joy.

The Adam Keehn Foundation exists to Encourage and Inspire Young Youth Pastors to Lead Students to the Gospel of Jesus by providing tangible tools to help a new youth pastor share the Gospel of Jesus … Tools that would help another “Adam”!
