Pastor Kevin & Kristie along with their family, the Williams and Maria Truett (mom) obeyed God and planted a church in Salem, Oregon in 2009. Willing to start their church in their garage, God blessed them with great partners, a church to meet in and favor in their city. Now, years later and their fourth location, Pastor Kevin and Kristie continue to serve as the senior pastors and are both excited about the impact CLC is making in their community and the KINGDOM.
In April of 2017, Pastor Kevin was elevated to the office of Bishop and overseer of the Northwest district of the Pentecostal Churches of Truth, Intl. In August, he received the Trail Blazer (life achievement) award and an honorary doctorate degree (Th.D.) from Next Dimensions University in Los Angeles, CA. and is now completing his earned doctorates (D.Min & Ph.D.) graduating in 2019.
Pastor Kevin is the host of “Straight Talk”, a television talk show that airs weekly in the capital city of Salem and is the author of “Position For Transition – Living in the Realm of Blessings”, “Real Fishing – Bait & Tackle Matter” and the series "The 21-Day Challenge" a 7-book devotional set designed to help you grow in specific areas of your life in 21 days.
Kristie was born in San Antonio, Texas and is absolutely loyal to her Dallas Cowboys! That aside, she is an anointed teacher and heads up our OASIS Women's Ministry here at CLC.
