Kevin grew up in Auckland, New Zealand, attending a Methodist Church from his early years. He began leading a worship team at 19 years of age and has continued to lead worship ever since.

While studying Engineering at Auckland University, Kevin felt a call to missions. He joined Youth With A Mission a few months after leaving University and trained in the School of Evangelism in South Africa.
Over the past 35 years has served on YWAM staff in New Zealand, England, Hong Kong and Hawaii. He is currently based in Kona, Hawaii with his wife, Liz. His three sons are all serving with YWAM, in Australia, Mexico and Kona. His daughter is studying in New Zealand to be a school teacher..

He has taught and led worship in YWAM schools in New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Switzerland, England, Germany, Philippines, Hong Kong, Hawaii, Japan, India, South Korea, Thailand, Costa Rica, Fiji, Canada, along with Alaska, California, Tennesee and Montana, USA.

His home church in New Zealand for the past 30 years has been Royal Oak Baptist Church, who support him as one of their missionaries.

Kevin’s main focus is the discipling of those called to the worship ministry. For 10 years he directed the School of Worship programme at the UofN Kona campus and now focuses on training and teaching younger worship leaders.

Kevin’s heart is to see all nations and peoples worshipping God under the leading and anointing of the Holy Spirit.
