Kevin G. Smith

about the teacher

Kevin grew up in Oregon, spending most of his time either playing outside or with his nose in a book (all depending on the weather). After sensing a call into ministry in high school, he pursued his BA at Multnomah Bible College (now University), and then traveled to Kansas City to attend seminary. Along the way he served as a pastor at several churches, taught Church History and Theology at two Christian universities and taught Bible, Humanities and Rhetoric in classical Christian education Upper School settings.

After returning to Oregon from seminary, Kevin met a beautiful classical Christian Grammar teacher, Ashley, who became Mrs. Smith. He is now in the home stretch of his PhD in Historical Theology through the University of Nottingham. These days, he enjoys spending time with his wife and little girl, finding joy in swing sets at the park and blowing bubbles in the yard, and his piles of books (some things don’t change!). Their shared passion is to equip parents to raise their children in the knowledge of the Lord. This reflects the vocation God placed on his heart many years ago: equipping God’s people for God’s work (Ephesians 4.11-12).
