Ken Baldwin grew up in central Texas as native Texan. He came to experience a new relationship with Jesus Christ at the age of 9. The strong influence of Godly parents and the experience of a loving church family helped shape his life then and now. He graduated from Taylor High School and then attended Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) on a football scholarship. There he received a Bachelor of Science degree with a Pre-Medical major in 1971. He received a Master of Divinity and the Doctor of Ministry degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas with a major in Proclamation and the Family.
Dr. Baldwin has been preaching since 1972 and pastored churches in various cities in Texas including Austin. He has preached in revivals and conferences all across Texas and in other states. He has spent time preaching and doing mission work in several states of the US plus Mexico, Belize, Brazil, Belarus, Russia and Israel. In January, 2005, he left a staff position that he had held for nearly 15 years to launch a new mission church. With the many wonderful people that helped by giving and working, that work took on a new location in June, 2007 when it came alongside some faithful people on Kinney Avenue in south-central Austin. Together they agreed unanimously to rename the new work Kinney Avenue Christian Fellowship.
Ken shares life with his wife, Terry, who is an outstanding Christian, mother and leader in the church. She has lead in planning and speaking at numerous women's conferences. They have four wonderful children. The two oldest, Calesse and Charlie are married and live in the Austin area. Katie is a clinical assistant at a local hospital and the youngest, Brad, is a freshman at Texas Tech University. They also have 3 very cute dogs!
In addition to ministry, Ken enjoys working out at the fitness center and keeping up with certain football teams. He and Terry enjoy traveling together and have led numerous trips to places such as Alaska, Canada and all parts of the United States and Texas.
Ken loves serving as Pastor of Kinney Avenue and sharing, along with Terry, all the wonderful relationships with the greatest people on the planet. When asked about life, he says: "I love my wife and family...and that includes my God-given family at Kinney Avenue."
