KEN REYNOLDS

Husband, Father, Son, Worship Leader, and Gospel Artist

Ken’s musical journey began in his teens, where he embraced almost every genre imaginable.

But Ken’s love of diversity wasn’t confined to music. Ken received a divine call to connect people through worship.

Ken saw a vision of a diverse church that blurred the lines of racial and social groups. It was a multicultural congregation that reflected his musical mantra: No boundaries, no walls.

“God was molding me, sharing that this was my calling.

“I feel a call to bridge not only racial, but denominational barriers, I realized that, through my background, God was preparing me all along.”

Ken also said, “I want to see people unified,” “And as the doors open, I want to spread that message throughout the world.”

Ken was able to see his musical platform expand beyond anything he’d envisioned, as his music is performed by groups and churches both nationally and internationally.

As Ken’s ministry expanded into touring, producing, mentoring, and hosting a weekly radio show, he continued to stay grounded as the worship pastor at Resurrection Life Church. Together with his wife, Andrea, and their children Kenton and Alyssa, Ken poured his life out for his Lord.

“I want to do whatever I can to build up God’s Kingdom,” Ken shared.

KEN'S LIFE SONG

Ken (KRey) Reynolds, passed away on Sunday, August 8th, 2021. Ken was born on May 13th, 1966 in Amarillo, Texas to Ben and Barbara Reynolds. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a minor in Music. On August 31, 1991, Ken married the ‘co-writer’ of his life’s song, Andrea. On December 30th, 1996 and July 8th, 2000 respectively, they welcomed their two beautiful children Kenton (KRey Jr.), and Alyssa (Lyss).

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.

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. Although he performed with many groups, and at many high profile events around the world, one of his greatest joys was worshipping with his home team at ResLife.
