College Ministry Leaders

Kenny Long, Collegiate Minister

Kenny moved to Providence from Oklahoma City with the strategic goal of building relationships with college students and discipling them in the Gospel. As someone who has always desired to preach Christ where He is not preached, Kenny never thought that opportunity would come here in the U.S. However, as he learned more about the spiritual climate of the New England region, especially Rhode Island, a burden grew in his heart. Only 1.6% of the people have had exposure to the Gospel in Providence and Barna Research Group calls it one of the least Bible minded cities in the entire country.

Kenny is excited to meet and engage lost students with the Gospel, to see them grow in their vision for fulfilling the Great Commission globally, and to see what God will do through the faithful proclamation of His word.  If God loves the nations, then we should love the nations by giving our lives to see Christ formed in a person’s heart.

Kenny lives in in the Smith Hill neighborhood of Providence with his wife Ashley and their four children, Arabella, Avery, Asher, and Kensley.
