Pastor Ken was born and raised in suburban Detroit. Ken graduated from Central Bible College in 1993 with a Bachelors Degree in Bible. After 7 years of preparing for ministry in Springfield, Missouri Pastor Ken and Rachel moved back to Michigan. They have been married 25 years and have 5 children: Kendra, Bethany, Nathan, Brooke and Ian. After almost 13 years of senior pastoring two different churches in Michigan, they felt the call of God in 2008 to plant a church in the Wixom area. Their greatest desire for CrossPoint Church is that they would be a family of believer’s who love God, love others and see that love transform their lives and those around them. In addition, their motto in ministry is “preach the Word and love the people”. Our deepest desire is to bring glory to God through lives changed by the powerful gospel of Jesus Christ.

A fellow finds himself in front of the Pearly Gates.St. Peter explains that it's not easy to get into heaven.
There are some criteria that must be met before entry is allowed. For example, was the man a church-goer or religious? No?
St. Peter told him that's bad.
Was he generous, giving money to the poor or to charities? No?
St. Peter told him that that, too, was bad.
Did he do any good deeds, such as helping his neighbor? Anything? No?
St. Peter was becoming concerned.
Exasperated, the Saint says,'Look, everybody does something nice sometime.Work with me, here! I'm trying to help. Now think! The man thinks for a minute, then says,'Well, I did help this old lady once. I came out of a store and saw that a dozen Hell's Angels had taken her purse and were shoving her around. I threw my bags down and got her purse back, then I told the biggest biker there that he was cowardly and I spat in his face.'
'Wow,' said St. Peter,'That's impressive! When did this happen?'
'Oh, about 15 minutes ago,' replied the man.
