Pastor Kenny was born and raised in the Ottawa. He was introduced to Christ later on in life by a faithful friend. When he was 20 God radically changed his life through a song and reading Romans 10:9. That day he was completely changed from the inside out. Years later his met his wife Liz at a basketball camp. They went on their first date and were engaged and married within 10 months. They now have three children (Jaylen 5, Lily 2 and Violet 3 months). They are both very excited to serve at Calvary Baptist Church and look forward to getting to know the people of this church and community. Kenny loves to laugh, play basketball, drink coffee, read Spurgeon and talk about Jesus.
