Kenny's goal is to “Transform This City – One Life at a Time.” He really does believe that a vibrant city full of caring people who live happy, productive lives can be a reality and not just a dream. He has personally witnessed the transformation of people’s lives that has resulted in healed hurts, mended relationships, restored families, and successful lives. It all started with the example of a Godly mother. His mom was married to his dad for fifty six years, until his death from chronic illness at the age of seventy eight. In those fifty six years his mom endured every form of abuse possible at the hands of an alcoholic husband.
In spite of the abuse, his mother always had a smile on her face, a love for God, for his father, and life. Her unconditional love for his dad resulted in his father, just two weeks before his death, finally asking Jesus to save him from his sins and give him eternal life. Kenny feels he owes his mother for his desire to show people God's unconditional love and an optimism that through the life-transforming power of God’s love people really can change. Someone asked him recently about the term in our name “This City”. “This City” is any city where our organization is invited to serve. Our target area of attention first is Hurst-Euless-Bedford – Kenny's home base. Then, “Transform This City” will expand outward from there as God leads. You may not know it, but the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the most successful Metropolitan areas in the world. It is the sixth largest gross metropolitan product (GMP) in the United States and approximately tenth largest by GMP in the world (Wikipedia – Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex). Yet, the HEB ISD, at the geographical heart of the Metroplex, is populated with a majority of children whose families live at or below the poverty line. In addition to the economic poverty that is overtaking our young, there is increasing social poverty of every kind that manifests itself through failed marriages, alcoholism, drug use, domestic violence, decayed spirituality, and every form of crime. Against this backdrop of increasing poverty, Kenny desires to lead our ministry to make a difference everywhere we can. Kenny has been actively involved in meeting the needs of people since the age of seventeen (40 years in ministry), where he started as a Summer Youth Associate Minister at First Baptist Church in Euless. Since then, he has served in various capacities in the local church, including Student Pastor, Married Adult Pastor, Worship Leader, Business Administrator, Minister of Education, and Senior Pastor, as well as Director of Community Ministries with 6 Stones Mission Network. He is a twice graduate of Dallas Baptist University with a BA in Religion and an MA in Biblical Studies. All of his previous experience has prepared him for this ministry and mission. He's been married to his wife and ministry partner Susan for thirty five years! They have two adult children, Colton and Joseph. Their sons are both graduates of Dallas Baptist University, each earning a degree in Music Business. Colton is married to Katherine and they have a new baby girl, Kate! Joseph married Claire this year and moved to Nashville where he is pursuing a career in the recording industry! Kenny's whole family loves music, family gatherings, and the great outdoors.
