Kevin Kline

Kevin has a passion for reaching men of the church and the community, encouraging them to take leadership in their families, their community, and their church. He works on a team who is creating opportunities for men to come together in events that men enjoy (cookouts, fishing, horseshoes, etc.) and sharing what the Bible says about being a man of God.

Kevin is a graduate of Stetson University, but has divided his sports fanaticism equally between the Hatters and the FSU Seminoles, where his wife Bonnie graduated. Kevin is very outdoors oriented and loves hunting, camping and kayaking.

Kevin and Bonnie reside in Sullivan’s Ranch and are blessed with three children, Luke, Harrison and Kaylee. They currently host a Small Group at their home Monday nights at 6:30pm.

Kevin may be contacted at 352-434-2007.

Our elders model the biblical concept of eldership. People today tend to think of church elders as lay, church-board members who are separate and distinct from the professional, ordained pastor. These are not “true” New Testament, Christian elders – they are advisers, committee men, executives, and directors.

A true biblical eldership is not a businesslike committee, but it is a biblically qualified council of men that jointly pastor the local church. While indeed our elders do have administrative and executive responsibilities, these are secondary to their primary calling as “overseers” of our flock.

Our council of elders include our pastor (teaching elder), a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, a Secretary/Treasurer, and sitting members. These men are called of God and held accountable to Him for leading, shepherding, and disciplining our members as well as protecting us from un-biblical doctrine.
