Joel & Veronica culberson

Kansas & Missouri Missionaries & US Field Directors


The Culberson’s have been serving as Awana Missionaries since the summer of 2001. Both of Joel and Veronica have a long history with Awana as they grew up in the ministry in different parts of the United States. They both worked hard and earned the Citation award upon graduating from High School. Awana didn’t end there as God brought them together at an Awana camp in Colorado. That was the beginning of committing their lives together and asking God to use them in His plan.


As Joel and Veronica served in their local church in many different Awana roles, we felt God calling us to go into full-time ministry work. The work of Awana reaching boys and girls for Jesus Christ and discipling them in the Word of God, complemented their passion for serving the Lord.


Joel & Veronica have four children Tiffany, Brianna, Erica, and Evan.


The Culberson’s serve the Northeast Kansas and Northern Missouri churches through training, equipping and encouraging pastors and leaders so they have an effective ministry in their local community. In addition, Joel and Veronica serve as Field Directors in overseeing a group of missionaries in the U.S. field.


They say,

“We are so grateful for our four children and their love for the Lord and our Ministry Partners who have faithfully supported us through their prayer and finances. Please join us on this journey in connecting with local churches so they can impact their community for Jesus Christ.”


I Timothy 1:12 – And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.
