Pastor Kevin and his wife Diane arrived at our church in the Fall of 2000. Pastor and Diane had been married in August and Kevin had just returned from a mission’s trip to the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Prior to coming to Terre Hill BFC, Pastor Kevin served 2 years as a Regional Evangelist with The Pocket Testament League, headquartered in Lititz. His responsibilities there included leading inner city outreaches each summer and doing evangelism training seminars. Prior to that, he spent over 13 years in the field of Adult Rehabilitation with mentally and physically challenged adults at Goodwill Industries and two other locations as a workshop supervisor. He was born and raised just a couple of miles from our church. He attended Cocalico High School (’81), Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Criminology/Pre-law ’85) and Lancaster Bible College (Bible and Christian Life ’96). He previously attended the Bible Fellowship Church of Ephrata where he enjoyed sitting under the ministry of Pastor Dan Allen.
