Kenny came to know Christ at an FCA Sports Camp in the summer of 2008 during a time of corporate worship. Ten years later, he never would have dreamed to have the opportunity to lead students in worship of the same Savior that changed his life.
Growing up in Corpus Christi, Texas, Kenny had a plan for his future – play four years of college baseball and then attend law school. Somewhere along the way, he forgot that the same God that changed his life also says in Proverbs 16:9 that "the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." He learned that the hard way. His freshman year at Southwestern University, the Lord led him to quit baseball (10 years of experience) and take over a budding worship ministry on campus (zero days of experience). After taking the LSAT and applying to law schools his senior year, the Lord called him away from becoming an attorney (6 years of dreaming) into vocational ministry (zero seconds of dreaming).
After two years of apprenticing as a worship leader at the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas, the Lord sent Kenny to College Station, Texas, to lead worship for Grace Bible Church and help edify Aggies with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He leads worship at a church that 2,500 college students attend, and loves to encourage students to be open to wherever God calls them, even if it doesn't match up with their plans. Kenny loves the vision and mission of Ignite, and he and his band pray that they will be able to sign a 100-year contract with the organization and lead worship every year for Ignite until Christ returns or the Lord calls them home.
