Passion. Compassion. Wisdom. Insight. I have known Kevin Murray for many years and I have had the pleasure of interacting with him both professionally and personally. It has been my experience that these words are key to describing his character. I have seen Kevin’s passion to serve our Lord and Savior and his compassion to help others who may be struggling in their own Christian walk. I have also been the beneficiary of his God-given wisdom and insight.

I highly recommend Kevin’s fellowship to those in need of encouragement and assistance with the challenges and obstacles that interfere with their own conformity to the image of Christ. As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17

I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Kevin Murray while he was in the real estate business. While very successful, it was evident to me that God had been preparing him for a higher calling in men’s ministry. Kevin has a great heart for the challenges men face in how we minister to our families, in the workplace and in our communities. I attended a monthly accountability group with him and several other Christian men. I always took one or two “spiritual gold nuggets” with me from that meeting that were helpful to me in my walk with Christ. I think you will too!

I think we all come to crossroads or periods of transition in our life. My walk with God had reached a point of flatness and had reached a burdening feeling for service when I was introduced to Kevin. I thought I had an inclination of where God was taking me next but through meeting with Kevin on a routine basis, my complete thought process was transformed to a different place. Kevin is such a good steward of the word and keeps a consistent ear and approach that is open to the voice God. I am so thankful that God has put Kevin and his ministry in my life. Meeting with him regularly has brought a fresh perspective that has taken my relationship with God to a completely new and heightened place.

I first met Kevin in dealing with a business transaction in 2007. It quickly became apparent he lived out his faith. In the years I have worked with Kevin, I have found his faith in Jesus Christ and his desire to be a disciple of Jesus permeates everything he does. Words I use to define a Disciple of Christ are believer, student, supporter, and follower. True belief is demonstrated in ones obedience and willingness to sacrifice oneself for what they believe in. Kevin demonstrates being a Disciple of Christ in every aspect of his life. He lives out Matthew 16:24 where Jesus says “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

Kevin Murray is wired spiritually and experientially to minister to men – especially business men. His heart is yielded to Jesus, so he has the strong hands of the carpenter. I can highly recommend Kevin to any man seeking a running partner for the race God calls us to run!

Over the past few years, I have come to understand more about grace and how we as Christians are truly free. Being raised in a more legalistic church environment, understanding the freedom we have in Christ and that He has called us to a life of joy now, not just in the hereafter, was a huge eye-opener for me. I don’t know of any man who better understands and exemplifies this in his life and ministry than Kevin. He has an unquenchable desire to have men and, in turn, families experience the freedom and joy that God has offered through His Son, Jesus. I am honored to call him ‘friend” and encouraged in my walk by watching him.

While there are plenty of men who desperately need to hear God’s word, I believe the real key is that people need a mentor who can teach them how to apply His Word to life’s decisions. Kevin’s life experiences, and his background in conducting his business as ministry, are powerful qualifiers for ministering to others in the marketplace.

I have known Kevin Murray for over 15 years and have always known that his primary motivation was to go into the ministry. When anyone is that passionate about anything they typically succeed at the highest level. Kevin’s passion for the Lord has made him into a great conduit for the Lord’s teachings. It is without reservation that I recommend Kevin to pursue his true love – teaching those who desire to ascend to a higher level in their faith, and encouraging them to strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ.

I have known Kevin Murray for at least 15 years, and I have witnessed the maturing of his faith in a way one can only observe in a small group of men meeting over many years. His prodigious knowledge of scripture is tempered by an awareness of the duties and obligations of a Christian man and an empathy for others that is truly the transformational work of the Holy Spirit. While one would be well served to just listen and talk with Kevin, a better way would be to also observe and learn from a man who leads by example and experience.

I’ve known Kevin since 2007. I’ve worked with him professionally and we’ve become friends. He is a scholar – a true student of Christianity – and a mentor. I’ve enjoyed my many conversations with Kevin. I leave those conversations feeling better and more confident about my own journey with Christ. I am happy to recommend Kevin and his endeavors at Encourage to Faith Ministries.

Over the past 10 years I have participated in a Christian men’s group with Kevin. What I have most enjoyed about Kevin’s participation in this group is the intellectual honesty he brings to the group. He constantly challenges each of us to be a better husband, father, and disciple of Jesus Christ by using his intimate knowledge of scripture.

I have known Kevin Murray for several years, and I believe that Christian love and compassion are a part of his personality. He has a firm grasp on Scripture and God’s plan for him and our fallen world. His love of the Gospel and his concern for his brothers and sisters in Christ are apparent from the moment you meet him, and he takes seriously his role as a servant and messenger. I believe his wisdom comes from the grace and spiritual gifts that God has given to him, so he does not boast, and I applaud his eagerness to use those gifts to spread the Good News of salvation and healing through Jesus Christ to anyone in need. I would not hesitate to recommend his counsel and advice to anyone in need of mental and spiritual healing.
