Kempton Turner


Kempton Turner was born dead in his trespasses and sins. He lived a sinful life in the passions of his flesh as a child of God’s wrath. But God, on March 16, 1995 made him alive through the powerful gospel of Jesus Christ and won his allegiance and affection forever!

Kempton was raised in East St. Louis, IL, but spent most of his life in Houston, Texas. He served on the pastoral staff at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN, for 7 years before being sent out by the Holy Spirit and the elders to plant City of Joy Fellowship, a new church in Kempton’s hometown of East St. Louis, IL.

Kempton is happily married to Caryn, his childhood sweetheart and the Lord has blessed them with five young children: Christian, Carysse, Kalia, Caleb and Kellan.
