Kamen Kuntchef is the founder & President of True Vine Ministries. Kamen’s background didn’t start in film but he had a passion for film making and storytelling since he was 17. He started True Vine Ministries, Inc in 2014 and has juggled both his career as an Senior IT Project Manager and developing this ministry. Kamen always knew that the Lord had a plan for him but didn’t know exactly what that would be.
Kamen left his full-time job in Austin, TX in 2006 to study theology at Andrews University. He finished 1 year of graduate studies and because of financial reasons went back into the IT workforce in 2006. During his time at theology school he realized that dedicating his talents to God instead of the corporate world was his goal but the timing was not right.
So in 2016, he started working on his first documentary film called “Coronado – Tagged for Life” and after 1 year of development the film was completed in the fall of 2017. In October of 2018 he received "The Most Inspiring Documentary Award", from the Hollywood Divine International Film Fest. This achievement was a confirmation that he was fulfilling God's purpose for his life. Sometimes, it takes years for God to get you prepared for his work.
