Ken’s local is in Upper Kittitas County in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state. It is extremely rural but is also connected and influenced by the communities all along Interstate 90, which flows right through the mountain valley. The specific needs of Ken’s local are vast, including homelessness, poverty, drugs, families, extended families, youth and children, and spiritual development.
Ken’s reach consists of leading in the way he follows the Lord. He strives to bring the touch of God to the lives of real people in their humblest moments of chaos and uncertainty. Ken’s main focus is to develop and support ministries and ministry leaders through counseling, credentialing, writing, preaching, teaching, coaching, interim support, and whatever he may learn along the way. He is developing his ministry as he goes, using the LAMP protocol which stands for: learning, assessing, monitoring, and planning.
Ken became an associate with InFaith in 2021.
Ken has spent the majority of his life preaching and teaching the Bible but has used his talents across many fields. He has a doctorate degree in Ministry Counseling and Church Planting and has spent 40 years in pastoral ministry.
