Senior Pastor, Kevin McKoy

Kevin and his family have been a part of our church family since January of 2007 when Kevin was called to lead as our Associate Pastor to Students.  In September of 2008 our church family called him to lead our congregation as the Senior Pastor.

Kevin was born in Newnan, Georgia. He graduated from Newnan High School in 1991 and was accepted into North Georgia College in Dahlonega, Georgia.  During his college years, Kevin was involved in the Corps of Cadets ROTC program at North Georgia.  It was during this time that he enlisted into the United States Army to the Artillery Branch.  Upon completion of his degree requirements, Kevin was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Chaplain's Corps.  He attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where he completed his Master of Divinity degree.

 Call to Ministry

"I was called to full-time ministry during my junior year of college.  Since North Georgia College was a military college, the Lord led me to combine ministry and military by pursuing the Army Chaplain's program.  I was licensed from my home church, Elim Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia, in September of 1994.  Since that time I have served the Lord at both a church and military level.  Upon accepting my first pastorate at Westside Baptist Church in Hinesville, Georgia, I was ordained into the gospel ministry in January of 1998."

Kevin has a passionate call to ministry on his life.  He believes that God still desires to reach people with His message of hope and joy.  Kevin and his wife, Christy, have expressed their heartfelt desire to continue to be faithful and obedient in whatever God has planned for them.
