Kevin Egan’s Bio
Pastor Kevin Egan gave his life to the Lord December 3rd 2001. The Lord put him on a fast track from a true born again experience. Born again on a Monday, the Holy Spirit brought him to a spirit-filled Bible study on Wednesday, and was invited to be on the worship team that Sunday morning at Emmanuel Christian Church. Two weeks later he enrolled in a biblical course study with Vision International. Shortly thereafter, he was recruited by, and began working with, the International Association of Healing Rooms, a John G Lake Ministry, in the Region 8 San Diego location. He was part of the training team that helped plant Healing Rooms in Southern California, Arizona and New Mexico. Kevin was instrumental in helping plant a JHOP, Justice House of Prayer, in San Diego which also stood with Bound for Life in praying for the life of unborn children. He received invitations to work as a worship leader at the Set Free facility in El Cajon, CA which allowed him to work with many struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Working with pastors around San Diego, many relationships were established. One of these relationships introduced him to a life changing ministry called Luv-Em-Up, a ministry to those with special needs. It was through this ministry that he began traveling to Zambia, Africa to plant a special needs ministry in every church with their partner Grace Ministries International, which has 82 churches throughout Zambia. On multiple trips to Zambia and Swaziland he saw the move of God, seeing many miracles, healing and deliverance. It was on one of the trips to Swaziland that he met his wife Joy. She was a supervisor of the children’s homes at an orphanage associated with Teen Challenge. After bringing Joy and her girls to America on a fiancé visa, they were married in November 2013 and relocated to Kansas City Missouri with IHOP, International House of Prayer. God has given Kevin the heart of the Father and this vision of building a home where family can be established.
