My name is Kevin C. Olmsted; I am 35 years old, and married to my wife Kellee for 9 years now with three Amazing children. Kevin (8), Katelyn (6), Kaden (4). Recently I completed my Associates in Biblical Studies at the Moody Bible Institute and have been accepted and enrolled into the B.S.M.L. degree program with a Preaching Concentration. The estimated cost is $46,000.00.

Being raised in Long Island NY just outside of Manhattan I had a turbulent childhood. I gave my life to Christ in July of 2002 and have never been the same! God has transformed my heart, which has lead to growing as an effective messenger of the Gospel to this ever-changing world we live in. As ideologies seemingly take over Gods love still reigns, but many are left not knowing or ever hearing of this love as it is drowned out by the static of life. I have a strong belief in community under Christ that has a multiplication of smaller church bodies doing life together while joining with the entire body of Christ to fulfill the great commission while living the great commandment.

Currently I am a an intern Pastor at Christ Community Church of Huntersville, where I also serve as a Deacon and help with our kids departments. I have strong desire for evangelical work locally and globally as God presents these opportunities.

Last year I severely injured my back requiring surgery leaving our family in a financial strain, as I was self-employed. Moody believes that students should graduate without an accumulation of debt as ministers do not usually earn incomes to cover such costs, and the Bible urges us not to owe anything to anyone, as we become a slave to that debt (Proverbs 22:7). God says to ask for what we need (John 15:7-8). So I have prayed for some time and sought wise council before reaching out and asking for help via this path.

My hope is to offset the expense over the next couple of years while spending more time applying what I am learning. Finding a healthy balance of being a disciple, husband, father, and minister requires discipline, being a servant requires faithfulness, all require the right heart and right people to make that happen as the investment is greater then the costs.

Ministers are needed today and being well equipped is essential. Moody has been doing this as an established, accredited, and respect institution with a rich history of training ministry leaders and missionaries to labor for Christ Jesus.
It has been amazing growing in Christ and I look forward to continuing that with help from all of you.
