The major part of Ken’s life is rooted in the Appalachian Mountains where his father was a coal miner. After his father was unable to continue working in the coal mines because of health reasons their family moved to Northern Virginia where he met and married his wife Judy. Ken and Judy have two children, Hannah and Seth.
Soon after the birth of their son, Ken answered the call to ministry and became a student at Appalachian Bible College in Bradley West Virginia. After graduating in 1986 he returned to Northern Virginia and became the senior pastor of Bradley Forest Bible Church in Manassas.
In 1991 the opportunity to return to his roots became possible as he heeded the call to become the pastor of MHBC. During his tenure here he has completed a Masters degree at Grace Theological Seminary and has recently begun Doctoral studies at Northland International University.
Pastor Ken’s heart for ministry is seen in his passion for developing a team of leaders who are committed to the task of the Great Commission. His vision for ministry is to see MHBC exalting Christ by showing the Beckley Community the love of Christ in practical ways and discipling those that God saves so the work of the ministry may grow effectively.
Ken and Judy are avid bird hunters. Together they enjoy raising, training and hunting their own bird dogs. A trek to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to hunt grouse and woodcock is an annual affair.
