Teaching Pastors

Kevin O’Hara

Teaching Pastor

After spending many years living in the Rock&Roll culture of the late 80s and 90s, Kevin O’Hara and his girlfriend were both converted to Christianity when they were sitting together one evening in the middle of the night reading the Bible looking for answers to the problems they were facing as a result of their lifestyle. They were married in July of 1992 and were later called into ministry. Kevin spent a great deal of time educating himself in an effort to truly understand God which has led to a BS degree in mathematics and numerous courses and hours of study in philosophy, theology, economics and history. It is his desire to share how the Christian world view puts all of these areas of inquiry into proper perspective.

Brett is passionate about educating Christians beyond the fundamentals of the faith into a deep understanding of God, and the role Christians are privileged to share in His plan for creation. He has co-authored several curricula with Pastor Kevin O’hara that creatively engage people with the revelations of God found in science, Scripture, the doctrines of various streams of Christianity, and human consciousness. As a pastor of 20+ years Brett also understands the care people need on their journey through the ups and downs of life and the profound impact the principles of Scripture can make on every step along the way. Brett is happily married to his wife Arlene and together they are the proud parents of five children.
