Messianic Hope in Isaiah 9
Rev. Kevin Smith is a native of West Philadelphia. The Lord drew him to Himself in 1981 when he was a junior in high school. One of his best friends “gave him a fire and brimstone speech and it was like I was in a dark room and somebody turned on the lights. For the first time I knew that Jesus was real and the Bible was true. He took me to his Pentecostal church revival service…. And I have been following hard after Jesus ever since.” Kevin Smith attended Penn State University and graduated from Temple University with a BS degree in 1989. He met his soul-mate and wife Sandra at Temple, and they were married in 1987 during Kevin’s senior year. They have been blessed with four beautiful daughters: Tesia, Bethany, Chara, and Joanna. For seven years Kevin worked as a therapeutic recreation specialist on clinical psychiatric teams in psychiatric units and hospitals in Philadelphia. He and his wife attended Tenth Presbyterian Church for four years where Kevin worked part-time as a pastoral intern for three years. There Dr. James Montgomery Boice had a tremendous impact on Kevin Smith’s life and ministry. Kevin began his theological studies at Westminster Theological Seminary through the Center for Urban Theological Studies. Upon moving to the Washington D.C. area in 1994, at the request of the Potomac Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America, he finished his studies at Chesapeake Theological Seminary receiving a Masters in Theological Studies. He and his wife planted what became Mt. Zion Covenant Church in 1998 in Bowie, Maryland, a suburb of Washington D.C. This small church touched the lives of African Americans, Jamaicans, Latinos, and mostly white college students from the University of Maryland. Several of the students were married at Mt. Zion and became strong members of the church. In December 2005 Pastor Kevin accepted the call to Miami, Florida, to be the senior pastor of Pinelands Presbyterian Church. Pinelands is a truly multi-ethnic and multi-class church with many members coming from the Caribbean Islands and Latin America. Pastor Kevin and his family moved to Chattannoga, TN and started preaching at New City Fellowship on July 8, 2012.
