Kenny Stokes was born and raised in Minneapolis. He came to know the saving grace of God in Christ during the summer of 1973 while at a Bible camp. One year after graduating from college, he entered Bethel Seminary and graduated with an M.Div. degree in 1988.
In August 1988, the Lord called Kenny to Oak Hill Baptist Church in Humboldt, Iowa. After 10 years preaching and pastoring there, the Lord then called Kenny back to Minneapolis as Pastor for Urban Ministries at Bethlehem Baptist Church in September 1998. Currently, Kenny serves as Pastor for Church Planting at Bethlehem Baptist Church.
Since 1979, Kenny & Kathy have been happily sustained by grace in their marriage and are the parents of four wonderful children. Kenny enjoys playing the guitar and lap swimming.
