Youth Pastor

Youth Pastor Keven McDaniels

Keven McDaniels

In 2012 we were called to Friendship and steadily began getting involved by attending Bible Enrichment then the Men of Valor also attending the Marriage Ministry functions. Eventually I had a conversation with Pastor Smith and stepped into the role as one of the Ministers and began teaching a Baptism class working with the youth and teaching New Members classes of which I am currently still doing. My wife and I soon after began teaching a Small Group and that grew and is continuing to grow as we lead that group it has become the young adult ministry which is called FYA “Friendship Young Adult”. And when there was no direction with the youth we stepped in to provide some leadership there and that group is now TNT “Triumph N Truth”. From there we reinstated the youth choir which is called RAW “Radical Anointed Worshipers”.

Upon coming to Friendship my family had an extensive range in ministry, beginning with my calling thirteen years ago and directing teen boys at Victory Bible Church being a lay minister, becoming Chaplin /Counselor at Word of Outreach Christian Academy. That led me to developing my first prison ministry at the Pulaski County Jail Little Rock Ar., also preaching at prisons around the country. I attended LA Bible Training School My family began a Christian bookstore in Pasadena and later developed the first privately owned Famers Market in the area and that began the Wisdom Café’. All were efforts to win souls for Christ now at Friendship we are looking to make that goal common place, thanks to a gifted leader in Pastor Smith and the current leadership that will happen as we use the 5 E’s as our tools.
