Pastor Kevin Ramsby | Senior Pastor
In 1990, Kevin Ramsby was considered to be one of the “least likely” individuals to ever come into a saving and life-changing faith in Jesus Christ. Through the prayers of a youth group, the modeling of authentic Christianity, and a youth pastor (Jeanne Mayo) who saw beyond Kevin’s past and reputation; Kevin surrendered his life to the Lord in Rockford, IL and his life was immediately changed.
Shortly after coming to Christ, Kevin was obedient to follow the Lord’s calling to ministry by attending North Central Bible College. During a summer internship in East St. Louis, Illinois, Kevin received a burden from the Lord for the lost, hurting, broken, and what many considered to be the “un-reachable people” within the urban cities of America. After serving in youth ministry for 3 years, Kevin and his wife Sarah moved to Detroit, Michigan in 1997 to work with the thousands of at-risk young people who were caught up in gangs, drugs, and hopelessness in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the city.
Following 7 years of pastoring and overseeing various outreaches throughout the city of Detroit, Kevin and his family were led by the Lord to begin serving Pastor Tim Dilena at Revival Tabernacle Church in 2004 which was located in the heart of Detroit in a city called Highland Park, Michigan.
