W.I.L.D. (Winning In Life Daily) Ministries was birthed out of a strong desire to see people win in every area of their lives. W.I.L.D. Ministries is active in ministering in the United States as well as to other nations. Their desire is to bring encouragement to believers, and equip them to experience victory in their own lives so that they can impact the world around them. Jeff and Mavis have ministered together in Mexico, India, Guatemala, and Papua New Guinea. In addition to traveling in ministry, Mavis serves on the Pastoral Team at New Creation World Outreach church in North Mankato, Minnesota where she ministers in various facets in her home church. Mavis believes that God specializes in turning tragedies into triumphs. W.I.L.D. Ministries believes that God has the ability to take any situation and turn it around for good and He has shown this to be true in their own lives as well.
In 1997 Mavis lost her husband after a battle with cancer. Life seemed hopeless as she was left with three small children, JonPaul, Moriah, and Lauren and an overwhelming financial situation. However, God proved Himself faithful through supernatural financial provision, and deliverance in every area; He sustained them in their difficult circumstances.
Not only did God deliver them from adverse circumstances, but also caused her and her children to rise above their situation. God provided a new beginning for them in 1999 when Mavis married Jeff Kurkowski. Desperate times were replaced with God's faithfulness, love, and a beautiful, ocean-side wedding in Acapulco, Mexico. God's faithfulness further resonated as Jeff adopted JonPaul, Moriah, and Lauren and what had once been a desperate, tragic situation had turned into a testimony of God's faithfulness, mercy, and blessing.
Mavis studied at Oral Roberts University and graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Okalhoma. She holds a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Theology from Life Christian University.
Mavis uses real-life experience coupled with her own story to teach God's word and her heart's desire is to see people rise above their circumstances and win daily in life. She has been teaching for 25 years in various church settings, women's conferences, and on the mission field.
