Lead Pastor- Ken Tilley

Lead Pastor- Ken Tilley

Ken Tilley is 47 years old and is married to his lovely wife, Stephanie.  Together they have three girls, Madison, Laikyn and Emerson. At a young age, Ken lost his father and God used his death to show him the reality of death and his need of a Savior. It was on August 26, 1984, that he realized his greatest need was a relationship with Jesus Christ and so at Rockyford Baptist Church in Devotion, NC  he repented of his sins and asked Christ to be his Savior and Lord.  From 19 years old and on, Ken has been constantly serving in ministry.

Ken has a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from UNC-Charlotte and a graduate degree from Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. It was while attending school there that he decided to permanently move and live in the Raleigh-Durham area. God has gifted Ken in the area of leading, shepherding His people and communicating biblical truth in a way that is easy to understand.

In his spare time you can find Ken spending time with his family and/or coaching them in volleyball or watching them play.  He also enjoys doing mission work.
