The Author

For over 30 years, Kevin Almond has worked with many different denominations as well as national and international ministry leaders. His efforts in encouraging and teaching the body of Christ how to walk in unity are well documented. Whether organizing citywide events, developing discipleship strategies for inner-city ministry involving various church denominations, or sitting on multiple committees with both community and church leaders, Kevin’s commitment is both refreshing and reassuring. He is a noted conference speaker and bible teacher that has spoken across denominational, gender, age and racial lines. Kevin and his wife Kathleen have been married for 35 yrs. and live in Ft. Worth Texas with their son Jonathan.

He built a platform to preach out of the scrap wood he collected from houses he was painting for local builders. Sixty people attended and one teenage girl gave her life to Christ.
