|North Jackson Baptist Church
Kenny was born in Louisville, Mississippi and lived there until he was 5 then moved to
Philadelphia Mississippi and lived there until the 4th grade. His dad was transferred to
Jackson, Tennessee with TVA and this is where all the Kinards call home.
He graduated from high school from JCM. He then went to Jackson State and received his
Associates Degree and then went on to Union University and received his BS degree. After
graduating he worked for Jackson National Bank as Assistant Purchasing Agent and took a part
time minister of music position at Hillcrest Baptist Church. He was there from 1982 to 1992. During
this time he met and married his wife, BJ from Batesville, Mississippi and she continued in ministry
with him at Hillcrest Baptist Church. In 1992, Kenny, BJ and their now 2 boys...Shaun and Cody,
began their ministry at North Jackson Baptist Church when it was located on Fairmont Street as
Minister of Music and Youth. Kenny and BJ were blessed to work with an incredible group of youth
and youth leaders. We went on many/ many youth trips and spent many hours with young people.
We were so blessed to have been able to work with so many young adults. They blessed our lives
more than they will ever know, He is no longer youth director but works with an amazing group of
dedicated and talented choir members. This is a group that truly loves to sing praises to God and
enjoys being worship leaders each and every Sunday morning. Kenny and BJ feel very blessed to
have spent time worshipping the Lord here at NJBC with such a wonderful, caring group of people.
Kenny loves to spend time with family and friends. He and BJ love to fish, ride jet skis, and ride 4
wheelers and spend time working together in their yard. Our boys are grown now and we are
expecting out first grandchild. A boy, Levi Paul is due to arrive in June. We are so excited about this
and spending time with him.
