Pastor Kevin is a native of Wilkes
County, NC. He was born in Shelby, NC while his parents were
in College. He accepted Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior
as a 10-year old boy.
He is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a
double major in Marketing and Management. He graduated magna
cum laude and was the top Marketing student at the
university in his senior year.
He and his college roommate started a Bible Study on campus
in 1989 and through this ministry he met his wife, Pam. Pam
and Kevin have been married for 27 years and have four
children, and two grandchildren.
Kevin accepted the call of God to full time ministry in the
fall of 2005 after 16 year career in the corporate world. He
has heart and passion for the family. Kevin is “homegrown”
in that he was raised in the church at Mt. Pleasant. He was
saved in the church, baptized and married at MPBC. He has a
unique calling that is actually much like the calling of
elders from within the church they were raised by the
church, as recorded in the book of Acts.
Kevin has a strong passion to see the family restored to its
proper place within the church. The family has been
fractured and splintered by the culture and this segregation
of family by age has been brought to the church.
At MPBC, the family worships together as is indicated in
Scripture. Kevin believes the only hope for our culture is
the church and the only hope for the church is the
restoration of the family.
He believes and teaches if parents will seek to make sure
their priorities are rightly focused on Christ and the Word
of God, (Deuteronomy 6: 5-7) then, they will see the fruit
of a full life in Christ through their family and the family
of God versus the "stuff" of this earth that will all too
quickly pass away.
Kevin has a vision to reach the community by preaching and
teaching the Word of God. He has a passion for mission work
that is local as well as abroad. The church supports various
missionaries throughout the world (currently in 9 countries)
and the church travels on Mission trips to TX/Mexico and the
Philippines annually. He practices expositional preaching,
verse by verse through chapters and books of the Bible.
He is unwavering in his desire to lift up Christ as King of
Kings and Lord of Lords with uncompromising vigor and
