My Name is Pastor Rob Kinney. My wife and I met at Pensacola Christian College in 1999. After graduation in 2001 Michelle and I were married. Immediately, we moved to Illinois where I became a youth pastor, and Michelle taught second grade. In 2003 we moved to Stevensville, MI where I took a position as Assistant Pastor. Our daughter, Michaila-Ann was born in February of 2004. Then came Matthew in 2005, Weston in 2007, Nathan in 2009, the final addition to our family is Noah, who was born in 2012.
While in Stevensville, the LORD called us to start a Church and in April of 2009 we moved to the Traverse City area to begin planting Heritage Baptist Church. We are sent out of Maranatha Baptist Church in Lansing, MI. In February of 2010 we started meeting in the Cass Commerce center on Cass road.
Until the Church is self-supporting, I work a full-time job as an eighth grade math teacher at Grand Traverse Academy. Michelle is a stay-at-home mom and a wonderful one at that. The kids enjoy playing in their back yard and with each other.
My deepest desire is to magnify my Lord, to do His will, and to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray for us as we start His church and consider this a personal invitation to come visit us at Heritage.
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.” Phil. 1:20
