Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ from Lancaster Baptist Church and West Coast Baptist College!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the ministry of my dear friend, Dr. Kevin Folger. As you may know, he faithfully served the Lord at the Cleveland Baptist Church for over forty years. While there, God used him to develop one of the strongest missions programs in our country.
In June 2019, Brother Folger resigned from the pastorate and is continuing his missions ministry with an emphasis on the 10/40 window.
Dr. Folger serves as the North American Director of Spiritual Leadership Asia. In this role, he is helping train national pastors as well as identify national pastors who need extra support in the area of church planting.
Spiritual Leadership Asia includes conferences for training, supporting, and mentoring servants of the Lord throughout the 10/40 window. I believe we are just beginning to see how God will use this collaborative ministry to plant more churches in the days ahead.
Let me encourage you to use Brother Folger in your missions conferences, and to join with us as we labor to encourage our brothers in Christ throughout Asia.
Dr. Folger will be a blessing to you personally, and he will encourage your church to stand for the truth and for souls in this needy hour.
May God richly bless you. Have a great day!
I am honored to be asked to write a letter of recommendation for my dad, Kevin Folger, the North American Director of Spiritual Leadership Asia. Kevin Folger, a 1978 graduate of Baptist Bible College, served on the staff of Cleveland Baptist Church for 41 years, 24 of those years as Pastor. He is a dynamic preacher, a man of absolute integrity, and is well respected among those he has ministered too and with.
In the late 1970s, my dad had a burden for the Far East which led him to take a missions trip to Singapore. He thought the Lord might be directing him to a ministry in that part of the world. Sensing that the Lord was not in it, he remained faithful by serving on the pastoral team at CBC. Eventually he was chosen by the members of Cleveland Baptist to be their next pastor and was installed as such on September 3, 1995. After many years in the pastorate, he began to contemplate what the Lord would have for him after his time was completed as a pastor. It was then that the Lord began to stir his heart again for the many unreached people in this same part of the world he had been burdened for 40 years earlier. The Lord opened the door for him to serve as the North American Director of Spiritual Leadership Asia, bringing him full circle in his life and ministry.
Today he travels extensively throughout North America raising awareness for the need in that part of the world, encouraging folks to give and pray. He also looks forward to the time when he can travel there and work directly with the pastors and Christian leaders to train, mentor, and assist them in the work God has given them to do. He is instrumental in the Spiritual Leadership Conference Asia which attracts thousands of Christian ministry leaders every two years in Manila. If you are looking for a worthy investment for your missions’ budget, this is it! If you are looking for someone to keynote your missions conference, you won’t be disappointed in calling him. If you need a revival preacher, pulpit supply, or couples conference speaker, he will be a blessing to you and your church family. May God bless you as you impact your part of the world for Christ in these last days!
Don Sisk President Emeritus BIMI
It is with great confidence that I write a note of recommendation for my dear friend, Dr Kevin Folger. I have known Dr. Folger for more years than either he or I would like to admit. I have never heard anything but good things about this dear man of God.
Dr. Folger has been used greatly as an Assistant Pastor for many years. Then as the Senior Pastor of Cleveland Baptist Church. He has been and continues to be a mentor to many younger pastors. For several years he served on the board of trustees of BIMI. His words of wisdom were a great help.
Dr Folger is an excellent preacher of the Word of God. He will be a great help to any church that has him. He has a great desire to get the Gospel to the world.
I have been privileged to know Kevin Folger for thirty years. I have enjoyed and benefited from his friendship. He is a man of integrity. His personal life, his family and his ministry at Cleveland Baptist Church attest to that. He is personable and skilled in the Word with high standards of holiness to reflect the God he serves. You will be blessed by his ministry.
