Kevin was raised in Big Bend, Swaziland. He went to boarding school from the age of 7 years at Highbury Preparatory School. The Ward family moved to the big metropolis of Mbabane in the late 70’s. Kevin then attended Kearsney College in Natal for his high school career. He began his tertiary studies at the University of Natal Durban, transferred to Western Carolina University (North Carolina, USA.) and returned to work in the family hotel business.
Kevin felt called to ministry, to leave the family business and open a centre for the needy in Swaziland. Initially this served the street children of Mbabane, then developed into a residential disciplineship centre for youth with life controlling habits, children’s homes for orphans due to HIV and AIDS, and a life skills centre. This later led to planting churches with a focus on helping the most needy in each community through practical helps such as health, nutrition and compassionate care.
Kevin is an ordained minister, being ordained through International Ministries of Assemblies of God. He currently serves as Executive Director to Challenge Ministries Swaziland & Bulembu Ministries Swaziland as senior Pastor of Potter’s Wheel Church. His heart is to shepherd people who want the help.
