Submitted by the First Baptist Church of Bedford
At the regular Sunday Worship Service, The First Baptist Church of Bedford at 155 Concord Road welcomed its new pastor, Reverend Kevin T. Cunningham, M.Div.
“After a three-and-a-half-year search, we are blessed to have Rev. Cunningham join our church ministry of ‘Becoming and Producing Disciples of Christ,’” said a faithful member.
Pastor Kevin shared that during his search for his next pastorate, “I was seeking a Baptist Church that was looking to serve the community.”
His motto is: “Here to encourage and equip as God gives opportunity.” He believes that one of the main reasons we meet together as a church is to encourage one another.
In addition to leading worship and presenting his weekly message of hope, love, and care, he will be teaching Adult Connections. Pastor Kevin will be overseeing the Sunday School program and presiding over membership weddings and funerals.
Pastor Kevin wrote his book, Time with God: Develop Confidence & Consistency In Your Personal Prayer Life for people who love God and long to spend time with Him, but need help.
It’s a 28-day journey designed to draw us closer to God by:
- Focusing on the nature and character of God
- Praying with the Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication
- Praying the Scriptures
- Praying our own personal prayers
Pastor Kevin’s other interests include videography and graphic design.
He and his wife, Alesa, have three adult children, one son-in-law, and an amazingly cute seven-month-old grandson. Kevin and Alesa are looking forward to serving the members at First Baptist Church and the community of Bedford.
