PASTOR KEVIN BEEBE

The Rev. Kevin Beebe joined Spirit Alive! as Pastor in September 2019. He arrived at Spirit Alive! after previously completing his internship at The Bridge in St. Charles, MO and finishing his Master of Divinity at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary of California Lutheran University. Prior to seminary, Kevin graduated from the University of Montana and served as a Young Adult in Global Mission of the ELCA, working in conjunction with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land as an English teacher in Ramallah, Palestine. He grew up in Pullman, WA, nestled between the wheat fields of the Palouse and the cultural center of Washington State University. Kevin and his wife, Kelsey, and their cat, Velcro, live in Kenosha.

Pastor Kevin is driven by an understanding that God’s Love is constantly breaking into our lives, pulling us into deeper relationship with the Divine and the rest of creation. He is drawn to the ways God’s grace trusts us into the world to live out God’s justice and proclaim that the Kin-dom is at hand.

Welcome to Spirit Alive! My husband and I became members because we wanted to connect and engage with a congregation that is relaxed, family-friendly and open to the needs of the community via service. I am a newly retired elementary/middle school teacher. We are excited about our space sharing with St. Paul's and the potential it brings for all of us. Come - connect with new folks, give ideas and suggestions, create new ministries and receive God's grace and love.
