He lives a life that is centered on relationships. This is what drives him personally, professionally, and spiritually.
Kevin Howells understands how the saving work of Jesus in his life transformed him into the leader he is today. And, as a member of the leadership team with Good News Jail and Prison Ministry, Kevin spends his days building new, and strengthening existing, relationships as the lead advancement officer.
Kevin is a special leader and a gifted fundraiser. It’s the stories of broken inmates turned prison chaplains that give meaning to the work he does. Kevin invites donors throughout to join in God’s work through Good News Jail and Prison ministry. He doesn’t view his role as asking for donations; rather, he considers it giving others the opportunity to participate in a life-changing ministry.
Not only has Kevin experienced rebirth in his own life and witnessed it in the lives of prisoners, he and his wife, Vanessa, have been privileged to see the Gospel in action through the adoption of their daughter, Mia, from Kazakhstan. Both Kevin and Vanessa, to this day, cherish every moment they get to build into the life of their now teenage daughter.
Between the adoption process, which was finalized in 2010, and the years Kevin has used to serve the Lord at Moody Bible Institute, Cedarville University, and now at Good News Jail and Prison Ministry, Kevin’s deepest desire is to serve others through transparent relationships and sharing the Gospel.
He embraces new challenges and the opportunities to make a difference, which he shares this week on the Cedarville Stories Podcast.
