Curtis Prunty is the teaching minister at Mt. Hope Church in Joplin, MO - an inter-generational Church of Christ/Christian Church hybrid (ask him about it). In Junior High, he received over 50 detentions for being a chronic talker. God would eventually redeem that gift and call Curtis to be a preacher. Curtis co-teaches courses part-time at Ozark Christian College, competes in fierce airsoft battles and coaches fighters for his hometown MMA gym. He is the founder of Kinetic Teams – a ministry care group that specializes in helping churches overcome the obstacles needed to build highly effective, flourishing teams. Curtis is married to Aubrey and they have a wonderful Cavalier Spaniel named Clancy.
