In 1992, Ken completed his Masters Degree in Biblical Studies from the Assemblies of God Theological School in Springfield, Missouri.

In January of 1987 they moved to Bethel Church in Rock Island, Illinois where they gave oversight to Youth and College Ministries until coming to Bolingbrook in 1992.
