Born in Melbourne, Australia in 1927 and converted to his Christian faith at the age of 14, Kevin Conner served in the Salvation Army until the age of 21. At this time he entered into pastoral ministry for a number of years.
After that time, Kevin was 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. Mark led the church for the next 22 years before transitioning out of that role in February 2017. Kevin’s oldest daughter Sharon is married to Frank Damazio and they live and minister out from Portland, Oregon in the USA.
Kevin is recognized internationally as a teaching-apostle after many years of church and Bible College ministry. He has written many textbooks used by ministers and students throughout the world. He has been in great demand as a teacher and has travelled extensively. His wife, Rene, passed away at age 89 in October 2018 and Kevin passed away on 18th February 2019 at age 92. He lived a full life, touched a lot of lives, and was ready to go. Our loss is heaven’s gain.
