Pastor Kenn's vision to minister in a multi-cultural city set on the Atlantic Ocean came true May 21, 2000 when the congregation unanimously elected Kenn as their new Senior Pastor.
Kenn was born and raised in Erie, PA. At the age of nineteen Christ came into his heart and called him into full time ministry. He studied at Gordon Conwell where he received his Masters of Divinity in 1995. He earned his Doctorate of Ministry in 2013 from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, MO.
Grace was born in Holland and at the age of nine her family moved to Switzerland to pastor a growing congregation near Zurich. She graduated as a licensed nurse and before starting a full-time job decided to work as an au par (Nanny) in America. During her first month in America, Grace visited First Assembly of God Church in Lynn, MA. It was there that she met Kenn. One year later the two of them were married. Grace earned a Masters Degree in counseling at UMass Dartmouth.
They live in New Bedford raising their three children. They love their church family, the city life, and the many opportunities to reach their city with the Love of Jesus Christ.E-mail: Pastor Kenn
