Pastor Kevin attended Bible college for 2 years and assisted Pastor Nathaniel Kallam at Apostolic Lighthouse Church in Navarre, FL for 7 years. He has been licensed with the United Pentecostal Church for 13 years.

When asked about his testimony, Pastor Kevin shared this story: “I was 10 years old when I experienced the magnificent gift of God’s Spirit. My parents were not attending church at that time, but my grandparents took my sister and I to Sunday School. Throughout the weeks that I attended Sunday School, I became interested in this amazing God. One night, while singing a congregational song, I started crying but did not know why. I just knew I couldn’t wait until it was time for ‘Altar Call.’ I ran to the altar and began to pray. When I realized what was happening, I was speaking in other tongues! My life has never been the same!”

Pastor Kevin felt the call to ministry at the age of 16 and began ministering at that time. He currently serves on the Pastoral Staff as an Assistant Pastor and the Youth Pastor. Pastor Kevin and his wife are involved in youth ministry and help with Children’s Church as needed, they are also both involved in music ministry. Pastor Kevin is involved in teaching the A.C.T.S. class and assists Pastor Shandon with maintenance at F.A.C.

When asked about his favorite passage of scripture, Pastor Kevin shared this encouragement: “There are many verses that have been pivotal for me while walking with Jesus. One of those would be Psalms 19:14 (MSG). No matter how bad I messed up yesterday, this verse reminds me that today is a new day and I will rejoice and be glad in it. God is there for me, if I will just acknowledge His will and guidance in my life. An old song says, ‘I can’t even walk without holding His hand.’ I don’t want to leave His presence because one day I will be with Him for eternity, and I want to make sure I get used to His dominion now in my life.”
