Biography of Pastor Kenneth Polk In the summer of 1979 the Lord Jesus embraced my life and delivered me from a life of sin. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior at Anderson Memorial Church of God In Christ, under the pastorate of the late Bishop C.L. Anderson, Jr. The realization that God had something special for me to do became apparent the Sunday I was saved. As I was walking out of the church I placed my hand on the door to push it open and the Lord spoke to me saying, "This is a new beginning, go out and face the world." From that moment, my life was transformed. It is truly by the grace of God that I have become the man that I am today. In 1981 I became a member of Christ Covenant Church where Arthur L. Gooden is the pastor. It was there I receive my ministerial calling. In 1982 I enrolled in the Detroit Bible College (also known as William Tyndale) Urban Ministries program. After one year I left school and continued and completed my ministerial training under the direction of Pastor Gooden. Through much studying and revelations of the scripture from the Holy Spirit, in 1984 Pastor Ken was ordained into the gospel ministry. In 1987 I became the Assistant Pastor of Christ Covenant Church. I served in this capacity until November of 1999. I left Christ Covenant to start and Pastor Followers of Christ Christian Center. Our mission at Followers of Christ C.C. is to build up the saints of God, and to guide them into an intimate relationship with God, our Heavenly Father. To increase their knowledge of whom they are in Christ, and the Spirit filled life they are to live. Knowledge gained in these areas will develop us and bring us to a point of spiritual maturity. This mission is accomplished through an intensive teaching ministry. In June 2006 Pastor Ken and Followers of Christ Christian Center became affiliated with Evangel Association of Churches & Ministries. Dr. Jerry Piscopo and Dr. Sherrill Piscopo are the overseers. In 2006 Pastor Ken wrote his first book titled "Living The Spirit Empowered Life." This book was written to bring the believing Christian to an awareness of the spiritual life they are to live through the Holy Spirit. God has called the born-again Christian to a life of holiness and spiritual liberty. Jesus did not save us from sin for us to continue to live in sin. Yet there are many believers today bound by sin and not walking in spiritual freedom. The reason for this is they are attempting to live a spiritual life through their physical energy, and it cannot be done. The Lord God said; "And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments and do them." Through the Holy Spirit we can live a life of holiness and walk in spiritual victory over the flesh as long as we remain obedient to Him, the Holy Spirit. This is what "Living The Spirit Empowered Life" is all about a life of holiness and spiritual victory as we allow the Holy Spirit to be the motivating influence in our life. As we move closer to our Lord's return it is so important that we be about the Lord's business which includes winning souls to Him and equipping saints for work of ministry. Pastor Ken has a strong desire to be used of God to help the body of Christ excel in these areas.Pastor Ken and his wife, Kim, reside in Detroit, Michigan.
