Before the Kulture was born, a young youth pastor named Brycen “Bryce” Marner saw the need for an urban youth outreach in North County. His heart was to help teens discover who Jesus is, and to build lasting relationships amongst their peers, and with adult mentors. In 2013, The Kulture (formally called “2480”) was introduced.
The Kulture has provided middle school and high school youth with a safe space for almost 10 years where they have been able to play, grow, and learn. While the activities, volunteers, and faces have changed over the years, what has not changed is the heart of The Kulture – Jesus is the only one who offers lasting hope and eternal life.
North County… And Beyond
From mission trips to other states, spiritual retreats, community service projects, and Kids Across America camps, The Kulture has provided teens with many opportunities to serve inside and outside of their communities. Thanks to generous supporters and youth fundraisers, we have continued to send kids and Kulture leaders out to be lights in North County, and beyond.
A New Beginning & A Goodbye
In 2021, Bryce was called to a new kind of ministry as a U.S. Airforce chaplain. We at The Kulture are so grateful for the creativity, prayers, tears, late nights, and long hours that Bryce contributed for so many years. Today, we continue the work he started, as we plant and water seeds in the hearts of young people, and share the love of God with the families we get to know.
Our ministry relies on a volunteer staff to provide rides, meals, games, trip preparations, small groups, and more. If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming a part of the work God is doing through the Kulture, we would love to connect with you! Click here to contact us!
