- KEVIN JONES -
Kevin Jones joined the People & Songs Community in January of 2017. Most recently (January of 2018) Kevin became the full-time worship director at Calvary Worship Center in Colorado Springs and is loving getting to share the good news of Jesus to his new church, city, and area. He is also currently working on his 1st full length record set to release in late 2018 or early 2019!
Over the past decade Kevin has worked with many great songwriters/artists. He helped write "Once For All" that was recorded and released by Shane & Shane, as well as has worked with them on their worship leading training website called "Worship Initiative". Kevin has been featured on Jimmy Needham's Hymns record where he sang on "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and was also featured on Charity Gayle's record where he sang on the title track "Lord You Are My Song".
Kevin is a true son to The Father. Their's is a beautiful relationship that was forged in a very difficult crucible which served to make him the grateful servant of the Lord that he is today. As a boy, In August 1995, Kevin's mom (Linda) sadly lost her 3-year bout with cancer and she went home to be with her Savior. A few months after her passing, his dad (Chris) sat him down and painted a simple picture of the Gospel - letting him know who he was as a sinner, BUT who Jesus IS as his SAVIOR (Ephesians 2). At 8 years old, through his mom’s death, Kevin surrendered his life to Christ.
Throughout his twenties, his eagerness and obedience to follow Jesus has led Kevin all across the US and to different countries, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Russia, Mexico, Barbados and Spain. He has had the opportunity to partner up with OneLife and International World Changers, both branches of the International Mission Board, serving missionary field reps. One of the songs Kevin co-wrote with fellow People & Songs brother David Gentiles titled "I Need Jesus" was used as a prayer by David Platt (president of the IMB) over all nations.
One of Kevin's favorite times of the year is when he gets to serve at The Emerging Sound camp. He loves to pour into the younger generation and help point them to Jesus in their songwriting. Kevin helped write 2 songs on The Emerging Sound Vol. 3 album, including "Let Revival Come (Revive Me)" as well as the title track "Never Look Away"
Racial reconciliation is another area of Kevin's heart that he is passionate about. He loves seeing people of all backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities coming together to worship the One true King. He believes that music is a great “bridge” to help sever division within the church.
Kevin has faithfully used his talents and gifts to share Jesus’ gospel message to diverse people groups. His music is a delightful fusion of Soul, Pop and R&B. His unique style has easily extended beyond the confines of genre, denomination, generation and ethnicity with the wide-reaching, cross-cultural, unifying love of God. Kevin is a proud Texan and and an even-prouder husband who had the privilege of marrying his best friend and joy of his life, Christina.
