Who is Kenny Mills
Kenny leads an organization called ruins REBUILT that can be found online at https://www.ruinsrebuilt.org/. We encourage you to check out this site. Kenny has already worked with three congregations in our area—Rosewood Baptist Church, Earlewood Baptist Church, and North Point Community Church. All three of these pastors fully endorse his ministry with them.
Kenny has a model of rebranding and relaunching congregations we want you to have the opportunity to hear. It is not a comprehensive long-term approach, but one that gets a congregation started in a new direction.
