Jim Ketring
President
858-217-1473

For the past 25 years I have been blessed with the privilege of serving the insurance needs of Faith Based Ministries. After graduating from Cedarville University, I always wondered where God would lead me: I never dreamed he would give me such an awesome responsibility.

Every day I am charged with the task of assisting ministries in making the “best choice” for their insurance needs. I am ethically bound to educate and help them understand what they need and direct them in taking the best path to accomplishing their objectives.

No matter what the need is, I am here to assist in any capacity. Feel free to give me a call toll free at 888-288-9953 or email me at JimK@ministryadvantage.net. I look forward to hearing about your ministry and what God is doing.

Many Blessings.
