Director of Music
Kevin and his family purchased land outside of Wortham and began building a cabin to escape from big city life on weekends and holidays in 2016. They never intended to move to “Russell Ranch” permanently, but God had a different plan for them; they fell in love with country living and the Wortham community. So, they decided to leave San Antonio and move to Wortham in June of 2018. Kevin teaches band at Wortham ISD and his wife, Stephanie, teaches Reading and Art at Wortham Junior High. They have two children, Emory and Brecker. Kevin’s hobbies include playing music, golf, coaching his kids’ sports teams, and taking care of all things and animals associated with Russell Ranch. In the fall of 2021 Kevin took over as Director of Music at FBC Wortham and is loving bringing a combination of old hymns and new praise songs into every service.
