Meet the Diamonds
"Lord Here Am I, Send Me" - Isaiah 6:8
Kevin and his wife Angie made the move from their hometown of Columbus, OH with their two boys (Preston & Carson) in June of 2016 to the town of San Andreas, CA. During that time God allowed the church to experience vitality. We praise God for the fact that revivals are still taking place!
Before being in California Kevin served as Associate & Youth Pastor for nine years at Faith Covenant Church near the Diamond's home town of Columbus, OH (where Kevin & Angie both graduated from The Ohio State University). While serving at FaithCov Kevin completed his Masters of Divinity at North Park Theological Seminary.
Many years of youth ministry, including YoungLife and other local churches, has ingrained in Kevin & Angie a passion to never making the Gospel of Jesus Christ boring.
Being a part of the community is important to Kevin & Angie so you will regularly see us at activities around the community. Many of those events include our two boys...Preston & Carson. We love that they understand the vision of church planting too and are excited about watching God lead the creation of new church as we serve Him.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a rapidly growing multiethnic denomination in the United States and Canada with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God’s grace and ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through a faith with Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
The Evangelical Covenant Church is:
Evangelical, but not exclusive
Biblical, but not doctrinaire
Traditional, but not rigid
Congregational, but not independent
The Evangelical Covenant Church is a pilgrim church. Until
Christ comes, we worship, serve, and witness so that the whole
earth may hear God’s voice, learn of God’s love, and experience

HOW WILL WE REACH THIS GENERATION?
Church planting endures as one of the most effective strategies to reach young people, engage a growing multiethnic population, and develop vibrant local churches that make disciples.
We invite you to discern your call to advance the kingdom of God by becoming a partner in this ministry. Together, we seek to answer one primary question, “Is the Living God calling you to support this church plant right now?"
We are proud to be a part of what God is doing with Covenant Church Planting in the Kingdom of God.
In our increasingly post-Christian era, 83% of Americans do not attend church. Nearly 1/3 of young people under 30 are religiously unaffiliated. Every year, more than 3,000 churches shut their doors, never to open again. Myriad challenges – from rapid demographic change to tepid evangelism – render churches ineffective in communities across the country.
