Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1927 and saved at the age of 14, Kevin Conner served the Lord in the Salvation Army until the age of 21. At this time he entered into pastoral ministry for a number of years.
Since then he has been involved in teaching ministry in Australia, New Zealand and for many years at Bible Temple (now City Bible Church) in Portland, USA.
After serving as Senior Minister of CityLife Church (formerly Waverley Christian Fellowship), he turned his responsibilities over to his son, Mark Conner, in 1995. Since that time, along with his wife Rene, he serves the Church locally as well as ministering at various conferences and the continued writing of text books.
