Keven has been serving as the Lead Pastor of Ridgeview since July of 2019. He spent 20 years here previously as part of the support staff, starting out as our Youth Pastor in 1992. He left in 2012 to become the Lead Pastor in Dinuba, Ca. He is incredibly blessed by the opportunity to return to Bakersfield to pastor his home church. He married the love of his life and God’s greatest blessing, Heidi, in 1990. They have 4 children, 2 by birth and 2 by adoption and over 50 heart children from their 20+ years of doing foster care. Keven is passionate about challenging people to deepen their walk with God and not settle for anything less than the best that God has for them. He believes deeply in accountability and connectedness through the building of relationships within the church. His verse to live by is Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your path”. In his limited free time he loves spending time with his wife, hunting, riding his Harley, doing jigsaw puzzles and watching his 3 favorite sports teams: The Dodgers, Lakers, and Seahawks!
