Hi, my name is Kevin W. Bounds. I’m a pastor at Morningside Baptist Church and a writer.
I live in South Georgia with my wife, Amber, and our two children.
Living in the Bible Belt, I grew up around the church. Although I professed faith in Christ in the third grade, I wasn’t grounded in my faith until I was 19 years old. About a year after rededicating my life to Jesus in December 2001, I accepted the call into pastoral ministry.
I love preaching from the pulpit, but I also find joy sitting at my desk writing stories. For years I wanted to connect the proclamation of God’s Word with my passion to write fantastical tales. It wasn’t until I read works like Holly Ordway’s Imaginative Apologetics, Eugene H. Peterson’s Under the Unpredictable Plant and The Contemplative Pastor, Gene C. Fant Jr.’s God as Author, and Paul Gould’s Cultural Apologetics that I realized my desire to write was not at odds with my calling to preach. In both tasks or vocations, the aim is to Publish the Story of God’s redemption in Christ. This site serves as the connecting point for these two passions.
