About Kevin:

Kevin is the President of The Mentoring Alliance based out of Tyler, Texas. It is a ministry that exists to mobilize godly people into the lives of kids and families, to provide tangible help and eternal hope. 

As the former Executive Director of Pine Cove, a large Christian summer camp ministry, Kevin has spoken to thousands of people of all age groups over the past twenty years. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University and is currently completing his Maters in Global Leadership through Fuller Seminary.

Kevin and his wife Stephanie have been married over a decade, and are raising 5 truly great kids - all under the age of 10. Three of them are “natural” and two are “supernatural.” Their youngest two began as foster children, but God allowed them the opportunity to adopt them in the fall of 2012. Stephanie and Kevin share a strong passion for adoption, fostering and mentoring children and get excited to share with families the opportunities Christ-followers have as “ambassadors of reconciliation.”

Kevin and Stephanie are drawn to the ministry of Family Matters because of the message of grace and their passion for the family. They are tired of “outside-in” thinking when it comes to parenting, and love to join other families in their journey of raising grace-filled kids.Kevin East Family

Comments from Kevin's Events:

“Kevin is doing exactly what God created him for. He's genuine, practical, insightful and humble. We've experienced some incredible speakers over the years and Kevin is now at the top of that list. What a blessing for us to hear his message!"

"I really enjoyed Kevin's message because it opened so many issues we want to cover up or not deal with at times as a parent. He offered so much of himself and was truly raw, humbled and relational in his messages and when he wasn't speaking.  He and Stephanie were very giving of their time outside of the sessions."

“Kevin did an excellent job on a very tough topic. He spoke with clarity, authenticity and passion. I trust he has not only studied the topic of Grace Based Parenting but also practiced it in his family. He is an inspiring leader and we were lucky to hear from him."

 "Kevin is a clear communicator. I believe he connected with each parent on some level. Has the ability to clearly demonstrate the gospel on a personal level. The topic was also very timely as we have been conscious of applying Grace Base Parenting principles with our kids."
