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 23 years and have four
children, two biological (Katy who is 19 years old and

adopted children from China, Clara and Andrew who are both 8
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. No children’s church,
no youth services…just the family of God worshipping
together as 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 fruits
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 (Mexico and Ethiopia). The church supports
various missionaries throughout the world (currently in 9
countries). 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
