Welcome to Very Bold Ministries temporary website! Here’s an update for our longtime supporters, friends, prayer warriors and a basic introduction to those who are curious or are praying about being Very Bold with us.
I’m Steve Teel and I’m the president of Very Bold (established 2001). Very Bold Ministries Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit tax-exempt organization (Federal Tax Id: 74-2982652). We exist to be a blessing to others and to fulfill God’s gifting and call. Our mission statement is to: Evangelize, Equip, and Encourage.
Here are some of the ways we are doing that right now!
The Peanut Butter Bowl
With the cooperation of coaches and communities of Johnson High School and Brandeis High School in San Antonio, we began the Peanut Butter Bowl in 2016. Johnson and Brandeis face each other in the opening game of high school football each season and so we saw an opportunity to make it a “We All Win” situation by collecting jars of peanut butter for chronically hungry children in and around San Antonio. We’ve collected over 15,000 jars of peanut butter which all go to Snack Pak 4 Kids San Antonio. See PeanutButterBowl.com
We publish resources and books including the children’s book, “Bobby Bee A Blessing,” in 2018. Through this book we encourage children whether anxious, stressed, or discouraged, to be a blessing to others. We are in conversation for our next Bobby Bee children’s book (Yeah, it’d bee a Beequel). In addition, we had donors buy Bobby Bee books for underserved children who are behind in their reading levels. See BobbyBeeABlessing.com
As part of our Very Bold mission, I am the chaplain for the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) hockey team. I meet with, encourage, disciple, evangelize, equip hockey players of the affiliate team of the St. Louis Blues (NHL) team throughout the season.
Recognizing the tremendous impact that high school coaches make every day, I facilitate weekly Bible Studies at both Brandeis and Johnson High Schools with additional opportunities to encourage, equip, and evangelize.
We are always praying about, considering, and holding conversations about how to feed more hungry children, how to feed more souls, and to win more hearts. Be sure to subscribe to our monthly email as we’ll keep you informed on those ongoing ministries and the good things coming up. There’s some fun stuff we are praying about right now!
I ask you to consider partnering with us in this VERY BOLD mission. God is good, faithful, and true. You may have heard that it is my honor to also answer Jesus’ call as Youth Pastor at River City Church (New Braunfels, Texas: RCNB.org; the best youth TRIBE and youth volunteer TEAM anywhere! And AWESOME CHURCH!) and I love it! And it’s been an incredible opportunity to be blessed by the church to continue to grow Very Bold Ministries and impact more lives for Jesus wherever and however we can. I’m asking you to pray and consider being a part of the Very Bold mission and team! We count on one-time gifts as well as ongoing recurring monthly donations of all different amounts. I could not do any of this without the generous support and encouragement of our “Barnabas” givers, “Luke 8:3 Difference Makers” and “Theophilus” patrons!
