Kindred Howard, Evangelist/Teacher

Kindred Howard has been a Christian for close to 25 years, nearly 15 of which have been spent in the full-time ministry. A native of North Carolina, Kindred graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1991. In 1992, he moved to Charlotte, NC, to work as a probation and parole officer, and was eventually led to Christ by a co-worker who studied the Bible with him and taught him what it meant to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. In 1994, Kindred entered the full-time ministry in Charlotte where he led campus, singles, and young professionals ministries. He has since led ministries and churches in Georgia and Michigan as well. In 2016, Kindred accepted the invitation to move to Athens and serve as an evangelist for the Athens Church of Christ. Kindred and his wife, Meredith, have been married for twenty years and, together, have five children: Emerson, William, Carson, Samuel, and Asher. Kindred is currently completing his Masters of Divinity work through Freed-Hardeman University.
