About Me

My name is Kevin Sanders.  I am a follower of Jesus, husband, expectant father, pastor, blogger, and caffeine addict.  Here are a few other facts about me:

I was born and raised in Pinson, Alabama (USA), a small town about 20 miles northeast of Birmingham.  It was (and still is) a great place to grow up.

I spent over eleven years in the Philippines as a missionary (2002-2013).  Most people called me Kuya Kevin  when we lived there (“Kuya” is Filipino for “older brother”).  I was blessed with the opportunity to write two books while I was there.

I met Mare Cris, my wife, while I was serving in the Philippines.  We married in 2012 and spent our first 16 months together in Angeles City (I was helping a friend of mine start a new church there).

We moved to the USA in July of 2013 and began our current ministry at Apollo Heights Baptist Church (El Paso, Texas) in October of 2016.

I am currently pursuing my Doctor of Ministry at Gateway Seminary.

    Hi Pastor Kevin! This blog is great! I can’t remember who posted it on their facebook status, but glad I found it!

  2. Hey Kevin. I see the drawing about some type of marriage seminar. Is that something you do? Is the cartoon depiction how you relate when you speak to groups? Would your primary audience be marriage age singles and young marrieds? I found your blog by searching bible on forgiveness. Thanks.

      Hi, Patti! My wife and I attended a retreat last year. One of the speakers was Joe McKeever, a preacher and cartoonist. We had our picture taken with one of his drawings.
