What is your personal reason for being involved: “Growing up in my teens I had always hoped for a ministry that would cater to my likes as a gamer and comic book nerd though I never came across any. I hope to create, with Shattered, some amazing stories and games that both are fun and engaging to Christians and non-Christians alike.”
