Kevin Shorter

Kevin Shorter is from Raleigh, NC and is still a devoted fan of his alma mater, NC State. He came to Jesus in high school having attended a Christian rock concert – yes it is possible. His heart was stirred about the possibility of God wanting to have an intimate relationship with him. He arrived at the concert humored by the audacity of people who wore t-shirts that said, “Love God, Hate Sin;” he left the concert proudly wearing one to school the next day.

This personal intimacy with Jesus has been a driving force since then. Kevin is a former member of Campus Crusade for Christ serving at the University of Florida and internationally in the Middle East.

Kevin holds an MBA from Wake Forest University focusing on marketing and entrepreneurship. He approaches his relationship with God with the same focus. As you read the blog, you will see his devotion to leading himself and others into a personal relationship with Jesus.

Kevin resides in Colorado with his wife, Allison, and two daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth. They started Josiah’s Covenant to create a family and jobs for teenage orphan girls. He has authored four books:

  3. The Voice of God: The book of Hebrews gives warnings about not listening to the voice of God. Don’t be like those who hardened their hearts… How does God speak today? This lesson goes through helpful guides to recognizing God speaking to you and ways to judge if it is from Him.
  4. Life Without Shame: Shame causes you to hide from God and self. It takes on mistakes as personal identity statements. It says not that you failed, but you are a failure. God never uses shame. This series takes you through steps of identifying areas of shame and steps to remove shame off of you.
  5. The Importance of Confession: Why does God call us to confess when He already knows and has forgiven all that we have done? This talk takes a look at a hidden story from within the book of Hosea to pull out powerful truths on God’s heart for you. Listen to this message:

    Hi Brother Kevin

    I am a Christian Grief Counselor in Niceville FL. I have worked for a Hospice here doing the same.

    With Hospice I could not counsel with my faith. And that i cold not do. So………. God led me to form a ministry totally devoted to grief counseling.

    My husband is a Baptist minister…so we have seen many losses and grief up close. A well as losses in our own life t
    where I found grief very up close and personal.And I even doubted my own ability to make it through. God led me and I did get through…AMEN LORD.

    Our home chrch is First Baptst church of Niceville FL.

    We have a seperate minister which is full time free grief
    Counseling..By His Grace Baptist Ministry. I have at least 20 in grief counsleing. I have written the books we use and have a few things Hospice allowed me to inculde.

    I have personaly counseled 567 people since 2005 in grief. As well as those dying and the familes. I feel very humble
    God called me to such a precious ministry that has blessed be beyond belief.

    oh, how I have seen Gods hand in forming scars on the hearts of those loved ones left behind.

    I have read from your web site and experiences. And I am praying for GOD TO CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU AND EACH LIFE YOU TOUCH. I thank God for your calling. Amen LORD

    I am presently writing as God gives me the words …….
    a book on grief. I am a Psycologist but I have never learned as much as from those I counsel in grief.

    I am including stories hand written from those left behind
    on the day their loved one died. And the stages they have gone through to get the gaping wound to form a scar on their hearts.

    God bless you’
