Perhaps less known is that Ken has spent the majority of his life in Christian ministry, as well. He preached his first "official" sermon when he was just nineteen years old, as an elder of a nondenominational congregation on the Alaskan Pipeline, some 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
Since then, Ken has served as elder, pastor, and counselor in a number of congregations in the United States and Mexico. He has served as a pastor within two major denominations, and in several nondenominational fellowships. For six years in Oregon, Ken served as a senior hospital chaplain, with responsibilities in ICU and the emergency department.
