The Greek translation of our name means “Spirit” or “The Spirit of God.” At Pnuma, our faith in Him is part of our daily lives, both personally and professionally. Many of you who have visited the site or have received Pnuma products, may have noticed Genesis 27:3 on the bottom of each site page, in the black “fractures” within our Terra camouflage pattern and on the spiritual card inside every jacket and pant we send. Many of you have written us to express your support and appreciation for Pnuma stepping forward with a statement of our Christian beliefs.
In addition to those statements of faith, we were seeking a deeper and more tangible opportunity for Pnuma to support a ministry with a strong outdoor theme. Kicking Bear Ministries is the perfect fit and we are pleased to announce that Pnuma will donate 10% of its pre-tax profits to the Kicking Bear organization.
The Kicking Bear Ministry is a nationwide faith-based youth program. Founded in 2000 by Ray Howell as a 501(c)3 organization, Kicking Bear is valued as an important outreach to the Christian community. By using God’s great outdoors and archery as tools, Ray and his ministry are able to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel.
These Kicking Bear events feature campouts, shoots and other events as a great way to introduce young people to the wonders of the outdoors and to the sport of archery. Kicking Bear’s mission is to help underprivileged and at-risk youth, or any young person who wants to experience the outdoors. Kicking Bear events are free to all those who wish to participate. By encouraging others to experience life outside their homes, Kicking Bear helps put dreams into kids’ hearts that will not only change their lives, but the lives of their families.
The Kicking Bear Ministry impacts youth by giving them opportunities to enjoy God’s creation while experiencing fun outdoor activities and making new friends. Nothing any of us do is as important as the impact we have on today’s youth. These outdoor activities help young people develop confidence in themselves, important values, meaningful skills, and trusting relationships.
