About Kevin Wilson

Kevin is a husband of 17 years to his amazing wife who teaches kindergarten readiness at a local school and a father to two beautiful daughters. He has spent the last 20 years in church leadership in various roles including Worship Pastor, Associate Pastor, and Senior Pastor. Kevin also spends time leading in the secular marketplace as a Human Resources Professional.  Growing up as a pastors kid in Michigan, Kevin was introduced early to ministry life, but it wasn’t until he was 18 that he would wake up to his own purpose. One night as he was contemplating suicide partially due to a traumatic event, Kevin decided to run to a local church in his neighborhood to find a reason to live another day. He found a couple of pastors there and the words they spoke to him that night changed his life. He had been in church all of his life but never had someone speak purpose into his life. That event would plant a seed that would set the course and focus of his ministry for the next two decades and continues today. Kevin’s passion is to help people find their purpose, know and embrace truth, and fall in love with Jesus. Kevin endeavors to do this through various ministries including podcasts, blogs, music, and books.
