Missionaries and Organizations

At K2 we believe that the body of Christ should work together in harmony. That’s why we put high value on supporting other Christ centered organizations and individuals. We work closely  with several organizations as well as with our K2 missionaries, who are making a difference in our valley, other parts of the country, and beyond the borders. Check out the list of ministries and K2 missionaries. Whether you you’re into feeding the homeless, teaching or even playing with some of the less fortunate you’re likely to find something that tugs on your heart. If you want to get involved, contact Eric Winter, K2’s Outreach Coordinator.

K2 Missionaries

Anthony and Catherine Duran

We believe that every dedicated Christ follower is a missionary according to biblical definition.  That is why we have devoted our lives to training and equipping believers, offering them the tools to become disciple makers. The Keystone Project exists to glorify God by focusing our attention on fulfilling the Great Commission.  One-by-one we are making disciples who are trained to make disciples.  We come alongside local and international pastors, Christian leaders, and missionaries, offering formal training and personal follow-up.
When we are not teaching and training abroad, we are “on mission” in South Dakota, where we serve on The Keystone Project training staff.  Keystone Project discipleship training has been given in nearly 50 countries around the world over the last two decades. Tens of thousands of leaders from over 100 nations have been impacted by this simple yet dynamic vision of multiplying disciples. The training is prophetic in tone, visionary in nature, and practical in expression. If you would like to learn more about the training please visit our ministry website at www.keystoneproject.org.  Also visit the Duran blog: tonyandcatherineduran.blogspot.com. You can receive our newsletters – just email us: Catherine@keystoneproject.org.

Julie Naanes

Five days after September 11, 2001, I walked into a church service looking for answers. My life was changed forever when I came to know Christ as my Savior and I have seen the miracle of sharing my faith with the lost. It was during my time as a student at the University of Utah, that I caught the vision for what Cru was all about. I am currently working nationally as the Intern and Part Time Field Staff Coordinator for Destino, the Latino and Hispanic arm of Cru campus ministry. I’m humbled to serve the Lord in such a vital effort!Contact Julie at julie.naanes@cru.org.

Supported Organizations

Local Church Catalyst

Local Church Catalyst provides local churches in small villages in India with the means to make water filters that not only provide clean water to drink but also help building relationships with the lost. Local Church Catalyst also strives to meet other needs that arise from these relationships; such as, supporting girls in education and supporting widows and orphans with the hope of them establishing the everlasting relationship with the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. http://www.localchurchcatalyst.org/
