Ken was born and raised in the Chicago area. He studied at Moody Bible Institute and Wheaton College Graduate School. After working for First Baptist of Geneva in the Chicago suburbs for 8 years as the pastor for university students he and Emmy relocated to Oceanside, CA where he continued to pastor university students at New Song Community Church.

Ken came to Christ Church in September of 2013 to joint the staff team, and leads Connect Central on Wednesdays. We haven’t let him leave yet.

He enjoys food, reading and loves road cycling so much he rode all the way across the USA in 2003. He met his wife Emmy outside of a coffee shop and they still drink coffee together every day.
