Kevin grew up in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the son of a pastor and often says “it has been my privilege to have lived my entire life in and around church.” In 1990 Kevin moved to Springfield, Missouri to attend Baptist Bible College. There he met his wife Kelly and was married in 1994. Shortly thereafter, he started working as the senior adult pastor at Cherry Street Baptist Church. It was in that ministry where Kelly and Kevin first started talking about planting a church. They are thrilled God brought a team together with them to start Sonrise in 2002.
The hope is that this blog will serve as an encouragement to you and a challenge to walk in godliness. We are committed to walking together through life as friends in Christ sharing wisdom along the journey.
“What a thrill to serve Christ and the fellow members of Sonrise
in the beautiful Ozarks.”
