Kevin & Missy Kleinhenz

Lead Pastors

Pastor Kevin Kleinhenz grew up in Houston Texas. As a Catholic he often thought of God and came to a saving knowledge of Christ at the age of 18. While studying law enforcement at Sam Houston State University, Kevin felt the call to preach the gospel. He was given that opportunity at his new home church the Houston International Church of God.
While attending there he became a full-time youth pastor from 1987-88 while working on his degree in Biblical Studies from Lee University. He then moved into associate pastor work from 89-90. In 1991 he entered full-time Evangelistic work as a full-time Evangelist in the Church of God. He married Missy Daniels of Livingston TX in 1992. They continued preaching Revivals and youth conferences from 91-95.

In the summer of 1995 they accepted the position of Sr. Pastors at Lake Livingston Church of God in Livingston, Texas. Kevin became an Ordained Bishop with the Churches of God (Cleveland, TN) in 1996. In the fall of 1999 Pastor Kevin and his family moved to Baytown, TX to become Sr. Pastors of Living Hope Church. During the 19 years he has been pastor the church has grown in many ways. In 2005 the church relocated and built a new worship facility on State Hwy 146 with 26 acres of prime commercial property. The church has experienced additional growth at the new location with new ministry opportunities as well as outreach into the community.

Pastor Kevin competes in the sport of triathlon and since 2002 has competed in over 65 races.
