Kevin Mays
Role: Youth Pastor

I grew up in church in a small town called Hamilton, Alabama. I made a profession of faith at age five in the church I grew up in. At an early age, my father fostered in me a hunger for God's word. When I reached my teenage years, my youth pastor pushed me to dive deeper into my faith when I told him I was wrestling with the call of ministry. One summer at a youth camp, I submitted to the call of ministry at age fifteen. I joined the Army National Guard at age 17. After graduating high school, I attended Bevill State Community College to begin working on my degree. I met my wife Lauren while attending Bevill State and we now have two boys. I was called overseas to Kuwait to serve for a year, returned home, and moved to Huntsville to work while I finished my degree at Athens State University. We have lived in this area for six years, and it is now home to us. I enjoy watching my two boys play sports, and in my spare time I like to play my guitar and watch sports.

Mission Sunday
Sun, Oct 28, 2018
The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds.” - Matthew 11:19 (ESV) It's instructive to me the people that Jesus counted as friends. They were a motley crew. Most of the religious people didn't want to be associated with them. They were from the bad parts of town and had major problems. But Jesus called them friends. In contrast, we often see 'those people' as folks who need our help. We 'do ministry' to them and for them but not often alongside them. If we aren't careful they are projects not friends. That's one reason why I'm excited about the way God has been weaving Hope together with the ministry of the Downtown Rescue Mission. In this tapestry of ministry the 'us & them' is disappearing as we are just the church. This week we are excited to have our friends share with us more about what God is doing at DRM. Some will come and lead worship. Some will share testimonies. And Kevin and Mickey will teach us about God's plan in the midst of it all. I hope you plan to be there and hear more.
Psalm 14
Sun, Jun 03, 2018
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. -- Psalm 14:1–2 (ESV) Fools are easy to point out and laugh at but harder to see, especially in the mirror. The Bible is brutally honest about the world around us and the struggle within us, but it also shows us the only refuge from them both. This week we are going to look at another Song of the Savior in Psalm 14. Kevin will be opening up this Psalm that looks at denial and rebellion. It points us to a sure, true, and strong refuge. Take a few minutes to read it through, and plan to join us at 10:30 on Sunday.
Fearless
Sun, Nov 12, 2017
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, - 2 Timothy 1:6–8 Fear is a crippling enemy. When we look around our world and we fear the threats that seem to be coming to our doorstep. We look inside and we fear our own inadequacies. We spin up scenarios of what might be and fear wells up again. With all of these threats, it seems the best option to take is to retreat. This week, Kevin Mays will be considering with us what it means to be a group of people ‘fearlessly on mission’. This involves us confronting what stands in our way and facing the consequences of what will come.
