Kerry joined YM360 in 2021 as Director of Publishing. Prior to joining the YM360 team, Kerry was a youth ministry veteran with 27+ years of experience serving and leading in churches of various sizes, denominations, and multi-site strategies. After nearly 3 decades immersed in all things youth ministry, Kerry is quick to tell you that he still finds immeasurable joy and life in every opportunity he has to engage teenagers and youth workers whether that be in the form of camp/retreat speaking, writing, content creating, coaching youth workers, developing young leaders, enlightening parents on adolescent development, church consulting, or training youth ministry teams. Born and raised in Mississippi, Kerry attended Mississippi State University, Mississippi College, and holds a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School. When asked where his allegiance lies, he won’t hesitate to tell you that he is a long-suffering yet proud cowbell-ringing MSU Bulldog (#HailState). Kerry and his wife Stefanie live in Birmingham with their two children.
