About Family Truth Ministries
Janessa Shelton was 19 when she began scripting the scripts for the Radio Program Coral Island Adventures. As she began writing she realized that she had more than scripts on her mind. She wanted to begin an organization completely dedicated to Christian Ministries, and reviewing family-friendly materials.
At the time, Janessa was attending a small Baptist church, and the pastor helped her to begin recording the radio drama and founded Family Truth Ministries.
In 2012-2013, Coral Island Adventures began their first season of 13 episodes. 2014-2015 Series two, and 2016-2017 Series three. Series four was recorded and have yet to be released.
In 2014, Family Truth Ministries released their Science Kids Website Kids Find Truth dedicated to Creation Science and Biblical Principles. In 2017, Family Truth Ministries taught a kids science seminar in Indianapolis Indiana teaching through PowerPoint Presentation, experiments.
In 2017, Janessa took ill with a serious thyroid condition that involved thyroid storms, and a heart condition. After her battle from January to April, she began trying to work on walking normal and restoring her health.
In the summer of 2018, did a home-school program called "Science Night" once every month from June-August.
December of 2018, Janessa married her best friend of four years, Christopher Shelton. Chris and Janessa have moved since, and continued the 501 (c3) Family Truth Ministries Inc. and live in a rural area south of Kansas City with their baby son, Christopher Jr. (CJ)
They enjoy serving and attending Grace Baptist Church under pastor Charles Kaighen. Pastor Kaighen serves on the board of directors here at Family Truth Ministries Inc.
Pastor Charles Kaighen
Pastor and Prayer Warrior:
Pastor Kaighen's involvement is very important to our ministry as he meets with the board and adds his insight, encouragement, and overall guidance. His 35 plus years of pastoring the same church is a wonderful example of what it is like to be in it for the long-haul!
Pastor Kaighen is a gifted speaker and is loved by many all over the US for his puppetry, VBS ministry, preaching, and his wife's love for songs, writing music, and teaching. They both are a tremendous asset to our board of directors.
