Rev. George R Carey

Rev. George R Carey

Pastor

Rev George R Carey was installed as pastor of KPC in February of 2016. Rev Carey and his wife, Nita arrived in Kingman immediately following seven years of ministry in overseas mission work and more than 35 years of pastoral and missionary ministry, including 4 years focused on Unreached People Groups at the U.S. Center For World Mission in Pasadena, CA.
George was ordained in the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination in 1979 and joined the Evangelical Presbyterian (EPC) denomination in 1990. He and Nita were born and raised in Tennessee where George was graduated from Memphis State University and Memphis Theological Seminary (Presbyterian).
From 2009 to 2016, George served as Director of World Outreach for the EPC at the denominational headquarters located in Livonia, MI and as Director of Church Development for Project Mercy, a humanitarian/evangelism ministry to poor rural Muslim farmers in Ethiopia, headquartered in Fort Wayne, IN.
George’s first love is Christ. Nita is his first human love. And preaching the Gospel is second to Christ and to Nita. George plays guitar and sings and writes Gospel songs. He enjoys following political developments, which likely stems from his background in broadcast and newspaper journalism.
George loves to focus believers on the Biblical mandate to reach the lost and hurting “at the end of the street and the end of the earth.”

Patty Young

Worship Music Leader

Scott and I married in 1990, and moved to Kingman in 2003.  Sports and Music have always played a large part in our relationship, and still do! Praise band and Choir are inspiring and satisfying, and we both have lots of fun making music for the Church.  I also get real enjoyment from chime choir – it was difficult at first but it’s a lot of fun practicing with the other chimers and coordinating to get the songs right. We hope that the music the Praise Band performs for the Church is inspiring and fun, that we reinforce and enhance our Pastor’s sermons on God’s word and help the Holy Spirit to enter all our hearts.  We love making music for ourselves and for anyone who wants to listen!
