Kevin joined the Willow Creek Church team after fifteen years of youth and pastoral ministry near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Originally from Western New York, Kevin is a graduate of Grove City College (BA, Political Science), Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and the Department of Leadership Studies at Geneva College (MS, Organizational Leadership). He is now a doctoral student at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando.
Kevin's passion is proclaiming the gospel as a message of liberation for all of life. He rejoices in the good news that Christ came to set the captives free by destroying the devil's work, and longs to see the liberated become liberators - joining Christ in his great work of redemption (Lk. 4:18-19; 1 John 3:8). Through the proclamation of the gospel message, Kevin strives to help followers of Christ understand their new identity by grace and live all of life in view of it.
In his spare time, Kevin enjoys spending time with his family, reading, plunking around on his guitar, finding a reason to have lunch at Four Rivers Smokehouse, or cheering for the Buffalo Bills and the Orlando City Lions.
Kevin and his wife, Molly, have four children ages 16, 14, 10, and 8.
