Kenny Shipp owned and operated several small businesses for many years. Currently he is helping to manage one of those businesses alongside its new owners. He has served his community on various boards and has been active on Pure Joy's Board for several years.
He is excited about where God is leading Pure Joy and is a prayer warrior for the ministry. Kenny's favorite verse is Matthew 6:33-34 - But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
The Message version phrases the verses this way:
Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
