Pastor Kenny and 1st Lady Julie Thompkins


Pastor Kenny and Julie have been happily married for 29 years. Originally from South Carolina, they felt the call of God on their lives in 1996 and with their two daughters, packed up and followed God's leading. Though the road has not always been smooth, God graciously protected and guided them to Orange Springs. Family is very important to them, so anyone who comes to the Lighthouse is loved and cherished as family.
