Born for such a time as this and having come from a generation of Preachers, Teachers, Apostles, and Prophets, Kevin McClendon is a submitted vessel, called to deliver the unadulterated word of God with power and transparency. He was reared and groomed in the local church as a child. His life shifted after having an encounter with the power and presence of God. This encounter broke spiritual strongholds in his life. A refreshing, empowering, supernatural life in Christ was ushered in from that point of conversion. As a result, Kevin humbly received a mantle to speak the oracles of God confirmed through the formal commissioning and the laying on of hands by his local leadership. Therefore, Kevin’s earnest desire is to minister to men and woman of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. His hope is for them to experience the manifestation and transformation of their lives through the power of the Gospel.
