Kevn Kaye

Kevin is one Kaye among many. As the son of Ken and Kathy, he holds the position of second amidst Kory, Kyler, Karson, Kaitlyn, and Keagan. Hailing from the state of Arizona, Kevin ventured across the country to do his undergraduate degree at Grove City College in Pennsylvania where he studied Christian Thought. Upon graduating in 2010, he has moved around a bit and most recently moved to Statesboro, Georgia from Charlottesville, Virginia. Kevin enjoys participating in a variety of things which include, but are not limited to, sports, music, dancing, reading, watching movies, and just hanging out. He is a broken person who has been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus. He is a work in progress as he continues to grow by the grace of God and he is excited to be an instrument in God’s work of Gospel ministry among students at Georgia Southern.
