Kenneth Leon Reynolds, also known as Ken (KRey), passed away on Sunday, August 8th, 2021. Ken was born on May 13th, 1966 in Amarillo, Texas. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a minor in Music. On August 31st of 1991, Ken married the co-writer of his life’s song, Andrea. On December 30th, 1996 and July 8th, 2000 respectively, he and his wife welcomed their two
beautiful children. Ken spent over ten years working in Sales Services for Steelcase, Inc. He served seven wonderful years in part-time ministry at Madison Square CRC as a Worship Leader, before entering full-time ministry in 2001 at ResLife Church as a Worship Pastor. For the last 20 years, Ken has had the honor of serving there in the ministry in various leadership roles, the most recent being Operations Leadership Team and Worship Pastor. During this time, Pastor Ken has mentored musicians and new worship pastors, served the congregation fulfilling various pastoral duties, and produced and recorded several solo and church projects.
