Ministry Profile: Kevin L. Wright 201 Jefferson Drive Charleston, AR 72933 firstname.lastname@example.org 479-222-3622 I am a 45 yr. old happily married (13yrs. this June 15th) evangelist to the former Chenell A. Horton. We have 3 young children (Faith 11yrs. old, Kenya 9 yrs. old and Isaiah 4yr.) I preached my first gospel sermon in 1990 on the campus of Southwestern Christian College where I was a student at that time. My wife and I serve full-time now and are firmly committed to the need and demands of ministry and building up of the saints and the preaching of God's TRUTH in the local community. We love and have a GREAT passion for people and relate well with people of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities. I’ve developed and learned under the tutelage and mentorship of such men as Shelton Gibbs III, Perry Cotham, Hardeman Nichols, David Miller, PhD and others. And while not a follower personally of either of these men, I taken from each of them priceless and valuable insights, knowledge and wisdom conducive to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word and the work of the ministry. We are pleased and quite interested in the work of Pulpit Minister there with the local congregation of saints and the community there, as it would be a humble privilege to serve the saints there with the leadership. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
